Workshop recommended for inspection officials, contractors, designers
NORRISTOWN — The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) invites code enforcement officials, builders, contractors and designers to a Thursday, May 15, training workshop in Exton on the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).
The workshop, a one-day program that will focus on energy code compliance for commercial buildings, will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Wyndham Garden Exton Valley Forge Hotel, 815 N. Pottstown Pike. Participants will learn about the duties of a commercial energy inspector, perform a thorough commercial energy review plan, review COMcheck software compliance materials and learn how to follow a process for completing thorough energy inspections, a DEP news release said.
The IECC is updated every three years by the International Code Council. In Pennsylvania, it is considered part of the Uniform Construction Code (UCC), according to Act 49. The cost to register is $40 and includes a training manual, breakfast and lunch. Six Uniform Commercial Code continuing education hours will be awarded to attendees, the release said.
Registration is available online at www.paconstructioncodesacademy.org and will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Walk-ins may be accepted if space and materials are available.
Funding for the workshop is provided by the department through a U.S. Department of Energy State Energy Program grant, the release said.
