To protect the safety and welfare of the public, all engineers and architects must get familiar with the latest building code requirements. Classification of building occupancy and construction types plays an important role in organizing and prescribing the appropriate protection measures for building occupants. Occupancy works with the height, area, and construction type requirements in Chapters 5 and 6, as well as the special provisions in Chapter 4 of IBC, to provide a reasonable level of protection or life safety. This course highlights the use and occupancy classification and the types of construction, and helps you comply with the latest building code requirements in your design work. The course materials are based entirely on IBC 2012: Chapter 3 - Use and Occupancy Classification and Chapter 6 - Types of Construction. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials. This course qualifies for Health, Safety and Welfare (HSW) credits.
