Still time to sign up for CAC’s residential building code inspector course at the Coolidge Center
January 16, 2009
COOLIDGE, Ariz. – There is still time to sign up for Central Arizona College’s International Building Code (I.B.C.) course being held in Coolidge starting in January.
The class will run every Thursday evening starting Jan. 22 through May 7 from 6:10-9:30 p.m. at Central’s Coolidge Center located at 168 South Main Street. The lone exception will be on March 19 when the college is closed for spring break.
The class will emphasize the residential building code, something that has been repeatedly requested since it was initially offered two years ago.
“We still have several slots open for the class, so this is a great opportunity for anyone who would like to start in the program right away,” Jim Fedenia, the community outreach coordinator at the Coolidge Center, said. “Accessibility to education and job training are key parts of our mission at Central Arizona College and this type of class helps meet these community needs.”
The three-credit class costs $249.85 for Arizona residents - $180 for tuition and $69.85 for the 2006 International Residential Code book.
Students signing up for the class should request course CRN 21664 WFE 205.
Who should take the course? Current inspectors requiring certification by their employers or those wishing to enter the residential building inspection field should strongly consider the opportunity.
The International Building Code is the regulating set of design principles and standards for the construction of all new buildings and occupancies. The I.B.C. sets safety standards relating to the protection of property and the preservation of health and safety for all building occupants. The code has been adopted by every jurisdiction in Arizona.
For students interested in taking the voluntary examination offered by the International Code Conference for building inspector certification, the course instructor will provide dates and times for the exam. The cost of the examination is approximately $155.
