BC&RC Learning Seminar: Mixed Occupancies & Inspection of Fire-Resistance-Rated Floors, Ceilings and Roofs

6 Health, Safety, Welfare (HSW) Learning Units
Mixed Occupancies? Separated occupancies? Accessory occupancies? Incidental uses? Need to trudge through Chapter 5 one more time? Or maybe say forget it, and go with the most restrictive? And then…what about fire separations?

These questions and more will be addressed during the September 16th two-part seminar, presented by the Building Codes & Regulations Committee, along with coffee, pastry, lunch, and chocolate chip cookies. The morning and afternoon sessions are considered separate courses each worth 3 HSW credits, so individuals may attend only session if they so choose. These courses are also PA 54 qualified, and lunch is included for those attendees that stay the whole day. All individuals who preregister will receive a digital copy of both presentations before the seminar.
