Instructor: Jeff Chalmers

In Ontario, all building design practitioners must obtain a Building Code Identification Number (BCIN) to ensure familiarity with the Ontario Building Code and to be eligible to obtain the insurance necessary to practice professionally. For designers of residential buildings under 6,000m3 two exams must be passed: General Legal/Process and Part 9/House. 

Endeavour will be presenting preparatory courses for both the General Legal/Process and Part 9/House exams.  We will be offering the new, updated OBOA (Ontario Building Official’s Association) curriculum training, which are the only courses built around the new 2012 Ontario Building Code.

Each course is offered over two consecutive weekends, and five days in total.

Participants will need their own copy of the two-volume Ontario Building Code-2012 or fully up to date 2006. 

You can buy the code book HERE   –2012 Building Code Compendium
