International Code Council partners with InterNACHI

We are thrilled to announce a partnership between International Code Council (ICC) and InterNACHI.  ICC and InterNACHI will be offering advanced continuing education options for home inspectors.  InterNACHI members will be treated (and more importantly charged) just as if they are members of ICC.  The first of these advanced offerings is coming up in Austin Texas in February.  Details are as follows:
2005 Residential Inspection Institute
February 14-18, 2005
Austin, Texas
ICC, the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) and the Texas Residential Construction Commission (TRCC) present this opportunity to those who desire to increase their level of proficiency in performing residential inspections based on the 2003 IRC or are seasoned inspectors preparing to take an ICC Residential Inspection Examination.
The Residential Inspection Institute will provide a forum that will allow you to:
  • Increase knowledge, skills and abilities concerning residential inspections.
  • Exchange and receive up-to-date information on a national level.
  • Network and share experiences with other professionals.
  • Discuss issues related to residential building, mechanical, plumbing and electrical inspections.
  • Perform residential inspections more effectively and efficiently.
Each attendee will also receive comprehensive and up-to-date resource manuals to reference during the event and after the event back on the job.
