  3. Participants will understand the differences of the new North Carolina Building Code and its impact on Residential Occupancies. Participants will recognize requirements within residential units with focus on the different requirements applicable to Type A and Type B Units including unit entries, door thresholds, kitchen clearances, appliances, bathroom clearances, fixtures, patios/balconies and operable parts within the dwelling unit.
  4.

Participants will further identify and distinguish settlements and court cases along with common issues on accessibility plan reviews.
