    I just released a brand new course at www.buildingcodecollege.com This course isn't about code sections, its about the code and the people involved. Those already with Full Enrollment, just log in and take the course. You get instant access. Our year-long Full Enrollment is an all-you-can-learn buffet of all our courses now and those that are released during your year. Here is the course description. You can take anyone one course for free with coupon code "welcome"

    Description: This course uncovers how the code works and the people involved. It begins with some fun history leading up to the current International Codes, and follows with an enlightening explanation of how the code is developed and adopted into law. Before applying the provisions, this course lays the foundation of how to navigate the code and how the code is administered as a minimum standard. The course concludes with sessions about key players in the use of the code and offers perspective from each of them in hope for a team effort in applying the codes across our communities.
    Length: Approximately 3.0 hours.

    Objectives: Upon completion of this course, attendees will…
    …Be introduced to some of the history of codes and how they got to be what they are today.
    …Learn how the code is developed, adopted, administered, and navigated. Learn the rules of the rules.
    …Gain perspective by seeing what it’s like working with code behind the plans examiner’s desk, through the inspector’s eyes, and in the contractor’s boots.

    Just remember, the politicians posters are typically still visible in the photos (check out reports on the coconut club fire). Some of the same politicians meddling in affairs are high lighted in the report and pictures.

    Barney Welansky, whose connections had allowed the nightclub to operate while in violation of the loose standards of the day, was convicted on 19 counts of manslaughter
