About this Event

Your Code Administrators Association of Kentucky has decided to forego in-person training for the 2021 Spring Conference due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Though your need to submit CEU credits for certification and license renewal has been suspended until the emergency order involving this pandemic has been lifted, CAAK recognizes that many, if not most of you desire to keep your CEU credits current. Therefore, the CAAK Spring training event will rely on the virtual classroom, as has been used over the last 12 months.

We are happy to announce that our 2021 Spring Construction Code Webinar Series is sponsored by the Department of Housing, Buildings and Construction. Through their continued support, we are able to bring you the most knowledgeable instructors in their profession to present the latest information regarding code application. Please join us in thanking the Department for their continued support .

The most frequently asked question regarding our events has to be, "ARE THESE CLASSES APPROVED FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT?" The answer is YES! Specific webinars have been approved by the Licensing Branch of the Department of Housing, Buildings and Construction for specific certification and license application. The educational agenda identifies the CEU credits for each webinar and the specific certification or license holder each webinar is approved to receive. In general, the webinars will satisfy the CEU needs for :

  • Kentucky Building Inspector Certification Program,
  • Louisville Residential Contractor Licensing Program,
  • Kentucky Fire Alarm License holders,
  • Kentucky HVAC License Holders
  • Kentucky ME/EE License Holders
  • Kentucky Licensed Sprinkler Holders
  • ICC Certification
  • and AIA licensing. (If you are an AIA member, the AIA credits you earn will be entered into the AIA National database automatically for you, provided you share with us your AIA National license number when you register. For AIA Kentucky credit, you will self-report your CEU credit hours.)

You have an opportunity to select from 12 different code related webinar events, running from April 19 thru April 23. To accommodate your busy schedule, some of these events are in a 2-Part Series, there are a couple full day presentations and to wrap things up, there are two 3-hour presentations from which to choose from. Topics vary based on requests received from the membership that attended previous educational events. We encourage you to review the webinar course descriptions and register for as many presentations as you choose. You are most likely using the webinar to satisfy your CEU needs, therefore, read each description carefully to make sure it is approved for your specific certification and/or license needs.
