Education Conference

Montana Building Codes Conference - offering FREE online courses to conference registrants

The Montana Department of Labor and Industry had to cancel the Annual Building Code Conference last March due to the COVID -19 virus but is now providing a series of free webinars to help you obtain the required continuing education credits for your licenses and certifications.  We have contracted with the International Code Council (CCC), Colorado Code Council (CCC) and the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) to provide webinars. 

You have or will be receiving information regarding the available classes if you registered for the 2020 conference.  Please read the email carerfully as all three entities are using a different web platform and the process for registering is different for all three so make sure you follow the procedure listed in the email for each vendor. 

There is also an offering for the Combustible Dust course that will be sent directly to registrants from Trevor Norris with Wyoming Mechanical Supply (WMS); watch for this email and follow the instructions to register.

These webinars are only being offered to those that registered for the Annual Montana Building Code Conference last March.

 Continuing with our commitment to education, the Building Codes Bureau is hosting the Annual Building Codes Education Conference.
