The following topics will be covered, which include working examples for application of:
- Provincial legislation,
- Objective statements,
- Functional statements,
- Intent statements, and
- Alternative solutions.
This workshop, consisting of eight chapters, will provide four credit hours towards mandatory training hour requirements for building official license renewal and four credit hours towards professional development for others.
