This Course Covers:
- Energy Efficiency. Energy requirements for all aspects of energy uses in both commercial and residential construction, including heating and ventilating, lighting, water heating, and power usage for building systems not only provide a better quality of life, but also protect the environment. This one hour course will help builders identify important considerations regarding energy conservation requirements in new home construction.
- Business Practices. It is important to maintain good business practices in your contracting business. This one hour course will help aspiring builders understand appropriate licensing requirements, applicable laws to follow when conducting business, and requirements for paying and hiring employees.
- Roofing. Several sections outline the roofing requirements necessary to provide a quality roofing system typically for a consumer's home, garage or other residential application. Information regarding roofing products necessary for code compliant applications includes fastener, shingle, membrane, and roof types.
- Construction Safety. This course highlights standards related to construction safety, including standard equipment use, maintenance, and inspection requirements for ladders and scaffolds. Falls are one of the most common types of serious injuries and deaths on active jobsites. Employers are responsible for maintaining a safe working environment, but when fall protection devices are impractical, personal fall protection equipment may be used.
