The RAIC Emerging Practitioners (RAIC EP) is pleased to offer a two-day Webinar on Part 9 of the 2015 National Building Code (NBC) in English for the 2018 year. This course is taught by experts from Vortex Fire Protection, Coolearth Architecture Inc., and Moses Structural Engineers. The session will provide a wealth of information condensed into two, 5-hour days, with question periods at the end of each session. The webinar is designed as an introduction to the NBC in order to support preparations for the ExAC.
