TRAINING THURSDAY: ICBA’s Blueprint Reading Courses

We’re going back to basics! Our Training Department wants to give you a solid foundation in a fundamental skill when it comes to working on a construction project: reading blueprints! 

ICBA offers two blueprint-related courses; Introduction to Blueprint Reading and Civil Blueprint Reading. We have sessions of both coming up this year!

Our next Introduction to Blueprint Reading course is in Burnaby on July 27; don’t miss your chance to register! You’ll learn how to read sets of residential and commercial blueprints, making this course suitable for all construction professionals.

Among the topics covered are the design process and the role of design professionals, architectural and engineering scales, understanding specifications, and layout basics.

We’re offering several more sessions of this workshop in Burnaby and Abbotsford later this year as well. You’ll earn 1 Gold Seal Credit and 7 Group A CPD Points from BC Housing.

Our Civil Blueprint Reading course will take place December 17 in Burnaby, and teaches participants how to read a set of civil blueprints, drawing specifications and general notes. Plus, you’ll earn 1 Gold Seal Credit!
