Offered jointly by the Architectural Institute of B.C. and Engineers and Geoscientists British Columbia, the 2018 Advanced Code Knowledge Course will prepare participants for the coming changes in the BC Building Code, as it has been updated to include provisions from the 2015 National Building Code, which will be the basis for the new 2018 BC Building Code.
Wondering if you should register for the course? Here are three reasons:
- Increase your building code expertise: The Advanced Code Knowledge Course will provide thorough instruction on the objectives and requirements of the BC Building Code and Vancouver’s Building By-law. Intended for architects, intern architects, engineers, EITs, technicians, and building officials, this course will increase your expertise and depth of knowledge in this critical area of practice.
- Earn all of your Learning Units (LUs) for the current AIBC mandatory Continuing Education System (CES) reporting period, and get a head start on 2018–2020: Participants will earn 60 Core LUs with the Advanced Code Knowledge Course – more than enough to satisfy the requirements for the current reporting cycle covering July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2018. For those who attend all sessions, 18 core LUs will be automatically carried forward to the next reporting period.
- Available remotely to everyone – both locally and province-wide: The Advanced Code Knowledge Course is conveniently available to anyone across the province as participants will be able to attend remotely via WebEx.
This course will be eight full-day sessions, and consist of the code-only portions of the AIBC-Engineers and Geoscientists BC Certified Professional Course. Some people take this course in preparation for taking the full Certified Professional Course and its associated Exams. The full CP Course will be offered next in 2019.
With the sole focus being on the building code, this course is particularly useful for architectural and engineering non-registered technical staff, and for those working in local government – both in building and planning.
All instructors have a high level of expertise in their respective topics; faculty includes architects, engineers and senior building officials.
The course will be offered in-person at the AIBC offices in downtown Vancouver, and remotely via WebEx.
