Program Purpose / Objectives
The seminars offered address two categories - CB316A - The International Building Code (Fire Protection Concepts) and
CB416A - Accessiblity and Design (New and Altered Facilities)
Seminar CB316A examines codes and how their requirements relate to the basic fire protection concepts that provide for life safety and property protection within buildings. This seminar deals mainly with the concepts of designing buildings to inhibit the spread of the products of combustion within the building, as well as, to other buildings.

The relationships between occupancy classifications and types of construction, and between mixed occupancies and mixed types of construction will be examined and discussed in great detail.

Seminar CB316A is based on the International Building Code (IBC). Subjects discussed include:
* Objectives of fire safety * Automatic sprinkler protection * Classification of occupancies and hazards associated with those occupancies * Types of construction * Interior containment of fire * prevention of exterior spread of fire * Limiting the size of buildings

Seminar CB416A provides an in depth look at the regulations that the construction industry must meet when designing and inspecting for accessibility for people with disabilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) will provide the basis for discussion about which facilities must comply with the Federal law and how the law is enforced.

The key differences between accessibility codes and the ADA as a Civil Rights Law will be emphasized, as well as the differences between what is required for public entities vesus what is required for private entities.

Seminar CB416A is based on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Subjects discussed include:
* History of Accessibility Laws * Comparison of the ADA and Accessibility Codes * Exempt Entities * Enforcement * New Construction * Alterations * Further Reading and Resources
Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.
