On Thursday, April 22, the Town of Jackson and Teton County will host the Wyoming Conference of Building Officials (WCBO) as they lead a seminar about the 2021 International Residential Code used for new one-and-two-bedroom family residences being constructed in the Town.
This training will help those in the licensed trades, including electricians, general contractors, and plumbers fulfill their continuing education credits to maintain their Certificates of Qualification (CoQ). Those in the licensed trades are required to maintain up-to-date CoQ cards by participating in eight hours of continuing education every three years. According to Kelly Sluder, the Town of Jackson’s Building Official, the last in-person class was held in November of 2019 and the Town is glad to help provide this seminar training once again as trainings were placed on-hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Individuals who have been issued CoQ cards by the Town of Jackson are required to obtain a minimum of eight hours of continuing education by attending an approved code seminar every three years. This training will satisfy continuing education requirements for all licensed trades, and the Town is pleased to support members of the licensed trades in maintaining their qualifications.
The seminar, will be held at the Lodge of Jackson Hold Conference Center, will begin at 8:30am and run until 5:00pm with a one-hour lunch break. The program is $150 per person for the full-day and class size is limited to 70 participants. Face coverings will be required for all attendees for the duration of the seminar. Individuals interested in registering should contact Billy Nunn at 307-733-3959, ext. 8415. The deadline to register is April 10, 2021 and space is limited. Early registration is encouraged!
