Course Description

     Code:  It’s important to recognize the fact that without a standard to meet, many buildings would simply be too dangerous and unsafe to occupy or, too costly to maintain. It’s not just safety and use that the code is concerned with. The current, enforceable code also addresses environmental and energy concerns. The building codes and the building officials that enforce them are there to safeguard the health, safety, property, and public welfare.

     Energy Efficient Building:  Even as technological innovation creates new construction possibilities, incorporating energy-efficiency into building projects can not only provide a better quality of life, but also protect the environment. A comprehensive approach to resource and energy efficiency is the best method to achieve a resource and energy efficient building. This course will help builders identify important considerations and then apply those principles to a specific project. 

This 4-Hour course applies four hours towards Specialty credit.
