This four-day program is a comprehensive review of Chapters 1-10 of the 2018 International Residential Code. It includes examples, exercises and case studies designed to illustrate daily practices performed by a Residential Building Inspector or Plans Examiner. Material includes a review of how the UCC amends certain provisions of the IRC, especially with regard to residential alterations and exclusions.
Common construction terms are reviewed by course attendees, as are common building materials. Building permit issuance is discussed with an emphasis placed on the most important issues to be addressed and resolved during the review process. Time will be devoted to how the IRC addresses engineered wood products and proprietary systems.
Interactive learning will be implemented through conducting a virtual inspection complete with house plans. Students will evaluate the building plans for content, determine what is lacking and then use the plans to conduct a mock onsite building inspection. A checklist of critical issues associated with footing and foundation, rough framing, drywall and final inspections will also be developed.
Practice exams, discussion questions and live interaction each day with instructors to respond to questions from attendees.
