Permit Technician Certification Test Prep Class

*** Friday, March 15, 2024 ***

8:30 AM - 4:30 PM

*** Rescheduled Class Date ***

This course is designed to help prepare participants interested in taking the ICC Permit Technician Certification Exam, familiarizing them with each of the code books and how to find necessary code information quickly and accurately.  Although, it is primarily focused on the ICC PT exam, it is also a valuable resource to other individuals who would like to learn more or refresh their knowledge about code administration.  The purpose of this course is to educate the participants on where to look in the code books for answers and not necessarily know the entire code. 

The course covers sections of the International Building Code (IBC), International Zoning Code (IZC), Legal Aspects of Code Administration and Basic Code Enforcement, focusing on code administration, occupancy classifications, types of construction, definitions, building interior environment, calculating permit fees and zoning and sign codes.

Participants are required to bring the following: 2018/2021 IBC (without the Oregon Amendments), 2018/2021 IZC, 2017 or 2002 Edition of Legal Aspects of Code Administration, ICC Basic Code Enforcement (1st or 2nd edition), a calculator and engineering scale.  Note:  You can use the following code years 2018/2021 of IBC and IZC books and any version of Legal Aspects and Basic Code Enforcement.
