Introduction to the Code

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.

Courses dates: Sept 12 and 13, 2016

Finally the course will conclude with information about what would be required of a Building Official should they be called to court.

This course will be of assistance to Building Officials working in both Part 3 and 9 as well as others involved in the administration and enforcement of Manitoba’s Acts, Regulations, Codes and Bylaws.
