RAIC Emerging Practitioners present National Building Code webinars

National Building Code Webinars

RAIC Emerging Practitioners (RAIC EP), is pleased to offer two webinars on the National Building Code of Canada (NBC). These courses are designed to bridge the path between architectural education and practice; providing practical knowledge and experience aligned with the Internship in Architecture (IAP) program’s requirements.

NBC Part 3: Saturday, September 30, 2017 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. (MT) Calgary, AB at the Jensen Hughes Consulting Canada Ltd. Calgary office 

NBC Part 9: Saturday, October 14, 2017 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.  (MT) Toronto, ON  at U of T, Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape & Design 

A limited number of attendees will have the option of live attendance at the venue from which the webinar will be broadcast. Or view it online from home!

COST: RAIC members pay $325 for Part 3 only or $450 for both

For non-members $400 Part 3 only of $590 for both.

Individuals attending these webinars must have at least a novice understanding of the NBC. These webinars are designed to simplify the Code and be taught as an introduction to the NBC, in order to assist interns in preparing for their exams. These webinars are not designed to discuss varying interpretations of building design applications, as they may relate to the Code. Each session will provide a wealth of information condensed into a six-hour format.

Please note, participants must have both volumes of the 2015 National Building Code of Canada on hand during the sessions. 

 

NBC Part 3 Fire Protection, Occupant Safety and Accessibility

Held for the first time in 2016, the RAIC EP is again offering this webinar on part 3 of the National Building Code.

 This course is taught by Jensen Hughes Consulting Canada Ltd., the leading name in safety and risk-based science in Canada.

The learning objectives of this webinar are a reflection of items 5.1, 5.2, 5.3 and 5.5 (as outlined in the ExAC General and Specific Objectives Guideline). 

NBC Part 9 Housing and Small Buildings

New this year, the RAIC EP offers a National Building Code Part 9 webinar.

It is presented in partnership with Vortex Fire Consulting Inc., who specialize in providing independent building code and fire engineering consultancy services. The session will be presented by Vortex, and has been prepared by Leszek Muniak, a building code and fire protection consultant for over 35 years.

The learning objectives of this webinar are a reflection of items 5.4.1 through 5.4.4 (as outlined in the ExAC General and Specific Objectives Guideline). In the interest of brevity, the course content excludes Section 9.10 : Fire Protection (Fire Protection is covered in the part 3 webinar), and Section 9.5 : Design of Areas, Spaces and Doorways

Each participant will be awarded a certificate of completion of the webinar session, of which, if applicable, could be used toward their designated association education credits (six credits each).
