Registration will be open the first week of February.  For this year’s classes, we are attempting to make it possible for everyone to attend by having our code update classes on back-to-back days. This should make it easier to send all your staff for this vital training by splitting the days, without causing too much strain on your daily operations.  We will be offering six (6) different classes daily for four full days.
So, mark your calendars as these classes will fill up fast, and space is limited.  As a bonus, the International Code Council will have their complete Book Store on-site where you can purchase all of your ICC code-related materials.  Lunch is served daily as part of our program.
