This 3-hour course provides useful continuing education on the 2015 Virginia Plumbing Code to plumbers in the state by focusing on the amendments made by Virginia when adopting the 2015 IPC. Every amendment is covered, showing what language was deleted, changed, or added, along with a brief explanation for the reason for the amendment as well as how all the revisions relate to one another.

This is followed by a careful selection of significant changes made during the 2012-2015 code revision cycle of the IPC. 35 code sections and 8 definitions are discussed, with the reasons for the changes based in part on the deliberations of the ICC technical committees.

The class offers a brisk overview of key revisions and code changes to the 2015 Virginia Plumbing Code to help plumbers in the state stay up-to-date with the latest requirements and methods.
