RedVector is proud to release a new course called 2012 International Residential Code (IRC) Update .  This 2-hour course is mobile-ready and identifies important changes in the IRC from the 2009 to 2012 edition.

It is important to have an up-to-date residential construction code addressing the design and construction of one and two-family dwellings and townhouses to protect the health and safety of the public as well as provide affordable housing. There have been key changes made to the International Residential Code® (IRC®) since the 2009 edition. This course will identify important changes in the IRC from the 2009 to 2012 edition. Participants will be presented with those changes that will most impact their use of the code when they adopt the 2012 IRC. The learner will receive an overview of the most important code changes.

By the end of this course, you will be able to identify the key changes between the 2009 IRC and the 2012 IRC; explain the differences between the current and previous edition; identify changes in organization and code requirements; and identify the applicability of design, plan review and inspection requirements.

This RedVector course was presented by Gary L. Nelson, PE, who is currently a Senior Staff Engineer for the International Code Council (ICC) in the Architectural & Engineering Services´ Plan Review Department located in the Central Regional Office. As a senior staff engineer, he is responsible for conducting building plan reviews of proposed construction, writing and dispensing verbal code interpretations, assisting in the production of training products, and teaching seminars.
