National Institute of Building Sciences Becomes ICC Preferred Provider

WASHINGTON – (RealEstateRama) — The National Institute of Building Sciences has earned recognition as a Preferred Education Provider by the International Code Council (ICC).

As an authoritative source of innovative solutions for the built environment, the Institute offers many continuing education opportunities for code officials and other members of the building industry to expand their awareness of the latest technologies and cutting-edge resources relating to the building sciences. By becoming an ICC Preferred Education Provider, the Institute can now offer the nation’s building safety professionals, among them more than 40,000 ICC-certified individuals, an opportunity to attend approved Institute courses and earn credit for their continuing education.

From seismic safety and multihazard mitigation to sustainable buildings and off-site construction, the National Institute of Building Sciences works on a wide array of topics to improve the safety and performance of buildings. Code officials are active in many Institute activities, serve on the Institute’s Board of Directors and participate on various councils, committees and projects. As an ICC Preferred Provider, the Institute will now be able to provide building safety professionals with credit for participating in approved education programs relating to such topics.


The National Institute of Building Sciences was authorized by the U.S. Congress in the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, Public Law 93-383. In establishing the Institute, Congress recognized the need for an organization that could serve as an interface between government and the private sector. The Institute's public interest mission is to serve the Nation by supporting advances in building science and technology to improve the built environment.

Through the Institute, Congress established a public/private partnership to enable findings on technical, building-related matters to be used effectively to improve government, commerce and industry.
