January 13, 2016

Hi Everyone!

Just to let you know we still have spaces available for the following February courses.  To register click here.

Introduction to the Code – Feb 22 and 23 (4 spaces) $390

This course is designed for those individuals who either currently use the MBC or MFC in their day to day work, and especially for those individuals who are going to be using the Codes for the first time.

Most Code programs are delivered on the premise that candidates come with knowledge and skills on the entire Code. Divisions A and C provide the required structure for Code Officials to properly apply the Codes. This program will provide the participant specific instruction on what an inspector can and cannot enforce based on the application of the code and finally it will teach participants how to properly classify a building. This program is designed as a prelude to participants continuing with advanced Code courses.

Section 2: Section 9.36  – Feb 8 (2 spaces), Feb 9 (1 space), Feb 19 (1 space) $175
The recent adoption of Section 9.36 Energy Efficiency in Housing and Small Buildings (Section 9.36) means that designers, inspector and contractors need to understand the new requirements. This training will cover the Prescriptive, Trade off and Performance paths of Section 9.36 including the Manitoba Amendments and a discussion on compliance.

Part 3 – Large Buildings – Feb 1-5 (9 spaces) $650

This course has been designed to enhance the knowledge of existing code practitioners and those practitioners who wish to improve their competence in interpreting and implementing the principles of the 2010 National Building Code of Canada (NBC) with respect to large buildings (Vol. 2 Division B Part 3). It is intended to help the participant understand the requirements of the NBC that apply to all large buildings. Participants must have a basic understanding of the NBC and requirements contained therein in order to be successful when taking exams or applying the knowledge to their jobs.

This course will help the learner find applicable NBC requirements and through the exercises contained herein will focus on educating the participant so that he or she may correctly interpret and apply the regulations.

Some areas covered by this course include:

  • Construction Types, Occupancy, Fire-Resistance and Occupant Loads
  • Building Fire Safety
  • Safety within Floor Areas
  • Exits
  • Vertical Transportation
  • Health Requirements
  • Barrier-Free Design
  • Tents and Air-Supported Structures
  • Self-Service Storage Buildings
  • Alternative Solutions, Renovations & Relocated Buildings
  • Environmental Separation
  • Structural Design, HVAC, Plumbing

Part 3 – Complex Buildings – Feb 16-18 (7 spaces) $500

This course has been designed to enhance the knowledge of existing Code Practitioners and those practitioners who wish to improve their competence in the practice of interpretation and implementation of the principles of the National Building Code (NBC) with respect to Large (Vol. 2, Division B, Part 3) buildings. It is intended to help the participant understand the requirements of the NBC that apply to Part 3 Buildings with emphasis being placed on Complex Buildings which are defined in the NBC as:

1) Post disaster buildings, and
2) Buildings containing building systems, works, fixture and service systems to which Subsection 3.2.6 or Articles 3.2.8.3 to 3.2.8.9 apply.

This course will assist in learning how to find applicable NBC requirements and through the exercises contained herein will focus on creating understanding so that the participant may correctly interpret and apply the regulations.

  • Structural Design, HVAC, Plumbing
  • Safety Measures at Construction and Demolition Sites

Introduction to BIM with Autodesk Revit (Level 1) – Feb 16-18 (9 spaces) $650

This course will teach the concepts of building information modeling, parametric design, and construction documentation through Autodesk’s Revit software. Through the use of intelligent building components and interdependent views of the building model, students will see how and why this type of software is transforming the way we produce presentation and construction documentation with the added ability to glean statistical and quantitative information from it.

A three-day hands-on step by step experience with Revit software. Build a model. Customize the components. Output presentation and working construction drawings start to finish. Problem solve and network with other likeminded professionals.
