It covers design and installation practices according to safety provisions in the National Electric Code. *This course will be hosted by IAEI using GoToMeeting.com.
2018 IRC Essentials
Dates: March 23 &24
Times: Each session is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This 6-hour seminar examines basic concepts of the 2018 International Residential Code (IRC). These concepts provide a basis for the correct utilization of the code. A clear understanding of the identified requirements allows the code user to apply the IRC in specific situations and helps to build an understanding of the intent of the code when asked to make a judgment on code compliance. Additionally, this course will show the code user how to correctly locate code requirements, provide a basis for the correct use and application of the code, and begin to develop a procedure for applying them. This course will be hosted by the City of San Antonio using WebEx Events.
