This four hour course on Iowa’s amendments to the 2018 Uniform Plumbing Code counts as four hours of continuing education credit. In the course, we’ll also cover the significant changes made to the 2018 UPC. The course is split in two sections:
- Iowa Amendments to the UPC, and
- Significant Changes to the 2018 UPC.
We start off by going into how the UPC is organized, including the organization and topics of the chapters and appendices found in the 2018 UPC. From there, we begin looking at the amendments made to the 2018 UPC, starting with Chapter 1. We cover all of the added definitions that were inserted into Chapter 2 of the UPC, as go in depth on the amendments made to chapters 3 - 4, 6 - 10, 12, and 13. We finish off this section by covering the additional requirements of the Iowa Code that apply to plumbers.
Next are the significant changes made to the 2018 UPC. These are the big changes that were made as the code was being updated from the 2015 version to the most current version, 2018 UPC. We start with the changes made to Chapter 3 of the UPC, explaining the reason for the change as well as how it affects you. We follow this format for all the significant changes, covering chapters 3 - 7, 11 - 13, and appendices A, L, and M.
Throughout the course there are in-text questions to test your knowledge as you go. Once you’re finished, you’ll be four hours closer to renewing your license!
