2012 IBC – Performing Nonstructural Plan Reviews
This two-day seminar will help participants better understand and apply the requirements of the 2012 International Building Code (IBC®) regarding the knowledge of performing a nonstructural plan review. When you complete this seminar, you will be able to determine whether a given set of building plans complies with the outlined requirements of the 2012 IBC.
The topics covered in this course are not all inclusive. Selected topics that mirror the plan review record are included and additional topics applicable to most construction projects are covered.
