2015 Existing Building Code Review

2015 International Existing Building Code – An Introduction

This 5-module course is based on the 2015 International Existing Building Code (IEBC). It teaches the practical application of the IEBC. Starting with the 2015 International Building Code (IBC), Chapter 34 in relation to existing buildings, has been removed. The IEBC is now a companion code to the IBC, as referenced in Chapter 1. This course will not only help the attendee to understand how the IEBC is organized, but will assist in helping you to understand the different compliance paths that are available. Each of the five modules consists of an integrated video presentation, including presentation slides, explanation, examples and review quizzes. Modules are designed to be roughly 1 hr. in length. Each of the 5 practice quizzes must be completed with a passing score of at least 75% in order to finish the course.
