The presentation covers the basics for determining minimum fire resistances for buildings using the 2018 International Building Code. Course material presented includes determining what minimum fire resistances are required for structural elements based on occupancy and type of construction, and code recognized methods to document compliance. The learning objectives are:

1. Participants learns how to determine the minimum required fire resistances for a building based on occupancy and use of different materials used to construct the building.
2. Participants receives instruction on the fire resistance requirements for key building elements including the structural frame, floors, roofs and exterior walls.
3. Participants gains a working knowledge of the various methods recognized Chapter 7 of the IBC for meeting the required fire resistances of the building elements.
