House 2012 – Course Description (Five days, 30 credits)
Prerequisite Required: None
This OBOA course has been designed to enhance the knowledge of existing Code Practitioners and those practitioners who wish to improve their competence in the practice of interpretation and implementation of the principles of the 2012 Ontario Building Code (OBC) with respect to Houses (Vol. 1 Division B Part 9).
It is intended to help the participant understand the requirements of the OBC that apply to all Houses as defined in the OBC as
A detached house, semi-detached house, townhouse or row house:
1) containing not more than two dwelling units in each house
2) three or fewer storeys in building height
3) having a building area not exceeding 600 m2
4) used for major occupancies classified as Group C-residential occupancies.
This course is designed to make use of your previous understanding of the Ontario Building Code, training, education and on the job experience. While this course will emphasize the Ministry of Municipal Affairs exam syllabi for Houses, participants must have a basic understanding of the OBC and requirements contained therein in order to be successful when taking exams.
This course will assist in learning how to find and apply applicable OBC requirements. Through the exercises contained herein, it will focus on creating understanding so that the participant may correctly interpret and apply the regulations.
This course should also assist participants in identifying those areas of the OBC where additional instruction and study may be required in order to be successful in challenging the Ministry of Municipal Affairs Examinations.
