News Updates - July 14, 2009

Two ways to access your legislative training

Legislative training for building officials on the bills passed during the 2009 Oregon legislative session is available from two different venues this year. The Oregon Building Officials Association (OBOA) is holding a class at its annual meeting in Bend, July 15 through 17. BCD is creating an online course that will be available, at no charge to the student, from the main Web site sometime before the end of July. Both classes will cover the legislation that passed during the 2009 legislature dealing with issues that effect building officials and jurisdictions.

Building officials need to take this legislative training (law change) course as part of the continuing education requirements that are specified in OAR 918-098-1450 (4). The online class will be accessible from BCD's Web site for up to a year. If you have any questions about this course please contact Sherri West at Sherri.D.West@state.or.us or 503-373-7509.
