The International Code Council (ICC) and the Building Professional Institute (BPI) announced a new partnership that will advance training for building professionals in Texas. Under the new agreement, the Code Council will manage the registration, administration and outreach for trainings, while BPI will focus on the curriculum to better serve the needs of building professionals in Texas.
Originally established at the University of Texas at Arlington in 1992, BPI conducts four annual regional events that offer quality education and training for building professionals, including building officials, municipal inspectors, real estate inspectors, architects, engineers, builders, plumbers, fire protection personnel, code enforcement, permit technicians, contractors, electricians and environmental health and safety personnel. Coursework done through these training events earn valuable Continuing Education Units to help attendees maintain necessary professional certifications.
“This partnership will reduce our administrative responsibility and allow BPI to concentrate on our long-standing tradition of quality education,” said BPI Officer Charles Clawson.
The new agreement allows BPI to leverage the Code Council’s expertise and resources to elevate its own exceptional training services.
The Code Council will begin supplying registration and outreach services for BPI’s October 2017 Central Texas event in August.
