Building Services-201

Instructor: Jeff Chalmers


This OBOA course has been designed to introduce or increase (where applicable) a practitioner?s knowledge of the OBC and to hone skills in terms of their ability to FIND (search the Code and identify non-familiar Code provisions), UNDERSTAND (to comprehend the language, structure and intent of a Code provision), and APPLY the Code provision(s) using case examples, situations and scenarios.

The objective of this course is to help you understand the requirements of the Ontario Building Code (OBC) applicable to the area of Building Services. This includes requirements contained in Division B, Parts 1, 3, 6, 9, 11 and 12.

This course covers the requirements of the OBC as applied to building services in all types of buildings. Requirements for building services in the OBC have been identified to have an impact on the following:
