Com. Building Inspector (ICC B2)



Course Objective: Types of construction and occupancy types are the key factors to understanding the

International Building Code. Once finished with this course, the student will possess a working knowledge that

will allow them to implement the structural aspects of the code. These structural aspects will include concrete and masonry construction, as well as the requirements for any size structure to withstand live loads, dead loads, wind loads and seismic forces.



 Method of Evaluation: Through a series of pre and post progress quizzes, reviews and worksheets, the instructor will aid the student in seeing how related tables and sections are used to form the current code. The instructor will help the student better understand how to interpret codes correctly and avoid common mistakes in the field.
