HSTTP – Why use the IRC?

The ICC High School Technical Training Program is designed around the widely-adopted International Residential Code (IRC). This comprehensive code compiles all building, plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas and electrical requirements for one- and two-family dwellings in one convenient code book. This allows the IRC to serve as a comprehensive textbook for students in virtually every construction-related discipline and familiarize students with examples of how construction codes are written and applied. Using the IRC and IRC Study Companion for coursework saves schools and instructors time and money because there is no need to purchase additional codes for various trades. The IRC is the most widely used model building code for one- and two-family dwellings in the United States. It is used or adopted by reference at the state or local level in 49 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
