Legal Aspects of Code Administration

In this course participants will discuss historical consequences of ignoring the regulation of building construction and materials, and learn how to interpret and applying local government, state, and federal legislative laws, pertaining to the administration and enforcement of a building code. Participants will learn how to define and apply concepts which are legally important to the administration and enforcement of a building code and establish or document rules of procedure used before a board of building code appeals. By using the guidelines presented in the course, participants will learn how to effectively testify in a court of law.

2009 IECC Fundamentals – Residential Provisions
This seminar provides an overview of critical concepts of the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code® (IECC®). These concepts provide a basis for the correct use of the code in the design, plan review, inspection and analysis of projects. It will provide a clear understanding and correct use of the requirements identified by these basic code provisions, tables and categorizations. You will have the opportunity to apply the code in clear-cut situations and build your understanding of the intent of the code when asked to make code compliance decisions.
2009 IECC Residential Inspection Highlights
This course provides an overview of the sealing requirements of the building thermal envelope for residential construction. The course is intended to help the building inspector, to identify the most important and problematic areas to inspect on the site to ensure compliance with the IECC. This half-day version (3 contact hours) of the course does not address the fundamental concepts of the IECC but rather an in depth examination of sealing and insulation inspection from the full 2 day seminar called 2009 IECC Performing Residential Energy Inspections.
