Register and reminder of the rules

The Division of Building Standards and Codes is hosting

In-Service training via live webinars.

The class size for each of these webinars is limited to 2,500 attendees – space is still available!  If you did not complete your training for 2020, then you should sign up for theses courses!

Learners who wish to participate in these webinars must register for the specific offering (date and time slot) that they wish to attend.  Learners cannot receive credit for attending the same course multiple times. . 

Please open the attached PDF document to view and register for these offerings.

To register:

  1. Open the attached document, click the registration link for the course offering that you wish to attend, and enter the required information.
  2. You must enter your code enforcement training ID# when registering to receive In-Service credit.
  3. An email verifying your registration will be sent to you. The email will contain the link for accessing the webinar.  Check your Junk Email if you do not receive the email verification.

To receive In-Service credit:  CEOs and BSIs who attend in-person conferences to acquire their annual In-Service training must adhere to certain recordkeeping procedures.  The following are the comparable webinar procedures:

  1. You must login to the webinar to receive credit. The login link is found in the email that was sent to you verifying your registration.
  2. You must login no later than 15 minutes after the scheduled start time of the course.
  3. You must not log out until the course ends.
  4. Attendees must participate in the webinar using a computer or tablet. Call-in participants will not receive In-Service credit as there is no way for WebEx to track your training ID # through the phone.
  5. Your attention-to-duration ratio must be at least 65%.

Please allow at least three weeks for webinar trainings to show up in your SLMS training history.

Notes pertaining to the attention-to-duration ratio:  Webinar attendees must be present and accounted for during a webinar to receive In-Service credit.  This is no different than what is required of those attending an in-person conference.  If a conference attendee were to sign in and then shortly thereafter leave and not return, the attendee would not receive credit for attending the course.  

The webinar program (WebEx) tracks whether an attendee is “present” by tracking the programs that are running in addition to WebEx. For example, if an attendee minimizes the webinar window or if another computer program is opened (such as a spreadsheet, email, internet search engine, etc.), then WebEx will interpret this as the attendee is not present.  The more time that an attendee’s webinar window is not the active window, the lower their attention-to-duration ratio becomes.

To illustrate how this works, consider an example where an attendee spends 15-minutes reading and sending emails during a 60-minute training session. In this example, the WebEx program would record this attendee as being absent for 25% of the course (15-minutes absent ÷ the 60-minute training session). The attendee would therefore have a 75% attention-to-duration ratio (45-minutes present ÷ the 60-minute training session).

Attention-to-duration ratios may drop as low as 65% during a training session. If an attendee’s ratio drops below 65%, they will not receive credit for the course. Please be sure that WebEx is the only program running during the presentation.
