Advance Your Code Knowledge At Scheduled Events

January 24, 2006

Two International Code Council (ICC) events will help you advance your code knowledge, learn about the changes in the 2006 International Codes, prepare you for transition from the Uniform Codes to the I-Codes and help you understand accessibility requirements.

Building safety and fire prevention professionals can improve their skills at the 2006 ICC Codes Forum, March 20-22, in Sacramento, Calif. Because of the 18-month code cycle, this year’s Codes Forum is an all-education event. There will not be code hearings.

With more than 30 code-related courses, Codes Forum attendees can brush up on special topics from means of egress to hazardous materials to sprinkler plan review. The Codes Forum also includes special ICC chapter-sponsored California Building Code Courses from the California Building Officials and the Sacramento Valley Association of Building Officials.

A separate event, at the same location, is the Design Professional Institute, March 21-22. At the Institute, learn how to design code-compliant projects specific to accessibility and usability, means of egress, wind loads, materials, fire resistance and fire protection requirements in the 2006 IBC.

At both the Design Professional Institute and Codes Forum, participants can earn continuing education units (CEUs) and American Institute of Architects learning units (LUs).

Plus, the Codes Forum has the ICC Virtual Trade Show. With the latest technology, ICC can share trade show information with attendees via CD, giving you more time to devote to continuing education.

The Doubletree Hotel is the official hotel for the Codes Forum and Design Professional Institute. For reservations, call 1-800-222-TREE and ask for the special International Code Council rate ($118/night + 12.5% tax and Tourism Assessment Fee of $1.25 per room). www.iccsafe.org
