East Hampton Town is joining the East End Council of the Long Island Builders Institute (LIBI) in hosting a series of continuing education classes at town hall designed to help builders satisfy town licensing requirements.

The LIBI will provide four seminars in the main meeting room of town hall on the following dates, with each session starting at 3:30 p.m.:

• Wed., May 4: NYS Energy Conservation Construction Code 2016—changes from the 2010 Code and the building science behind the Code (2 hours)

• Wed., May 25: Best Practices to Meet and Exceed the NYSECCC (Energy Conservation Construction Code of New York State) 2016 (2 hours)

• Wed., June 15: Marketing for Contractors (2 hours)

• Wed., June 29: Flooring Next Generation—Ultra-Compact Surfaces (1 hour)

The cost for each session is $25 for LIBI members and $40 for non-members. Participants may register by calling LIBI at 631.232.2345. Limited at-the-door registration will be possible, pending space availability. T

The Energy Code sessions are state approved for Continuing Education Units (CEU) for code inspectors, home inspectors, the Building Performance Institute, and the American Institute of Architects (AIA). The “Flooring Next Generation” session is approved for 1 CEU for the AIA.

“New York State just passed and implemented the new Energy Conservation Code and is currently in its interim period,” said John Barrows, the instructor for the Energy Code sessions. “It will go into effect at the end of September this year. This is a great opportunity to get a jump on its implementation and gather CEU credits at the same time. Additionally, all sessions taken together will provide a good foundation to meeting the two-year requirement for continuing education. LIBI is appreciative of the town’s efforts to assist the building community in meeting its CEU requirement.”
