Tampa, FL (PRWEB) March 16, 2012
RedVector.com, the leader in online continuing education and training for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry, recently updated its online education library to reflect the most recent changes to the Florida Building Code (FBC). Two newly revised 1-hour courses include: Florida Building Code Advanced 2010: Residential Floors and Florida Building Code Advanced 2010: Fixtures, Faucets and Fixture Fittings. Florida contractors are required to complete one hour of an approved advanced building code course every two years.
“This marks the first time in RedVector history we have had courses approved and launched in advance of the new Florida Building Code going into effect,” says RedVector Vice President of Content Matt Casey, PhD. “We consider it a great accomplishment to have these courses available already and a testament to our commitment to providing the highest-quality CE content in the industry.”
During the 1970s construction boom, statewide building codes were first mandated for the state of Florida, and in March 2002 the Florida Building Code was developed to create a uniform code to be enforced by all local governments. The code is periodically reviewed and updated, and the most recent version—which went into effect March15, 2012—reflects the 2010 changes.
“As an education provider we have an obligation to our clients to provide the most accurate and up-to-date course content,” says Jeff Nippes, Director of Content Development for RedVector. “
“For our Florida-based professionals, these new courses reflect the most current version of the Florida Building Code and complement our existing Florida Building Code course library. In the coming months we also plan on releasing several more 2010 FBC courses focusing on various sections of the new building code currently under development.”
