The International Code Council will hold its inaugural virtual education summit, ICC Learn Live, on November 9-13, 2020.

The online event will include a series of panel sessions and keynotes from experts across the building industry. Topics will include training the next generation of talent, the impact of COVID-19 on building safety and the economy, adopting virtual capabilities, and an in-depth overview of the upcoming 2021 International Codes (I-Codes).

Educational sessions will offer continuing education units (CEUs). The COVID-19 pandemic spurred the event, but presenters will cover other areas of study.

“This event is not just about COVID-19, but rather covers many aspects of the building safety industry,” said Code Council Chief Knowledge Officer, Joan O’Neil. “Through this online education event, we hope to provide a more in-depth and personalized experience that will educate attendees on the changing landscape and provide the necessary insights to navigate it.”
