Continuing Education Providers 

The Uniform Construction Code (UCC) training and certification regulation provides a listing of organizations and types of organizations that the Department of Labor and Industry deems acceptable as providers of continuing education. No additional approvals are needed for any organization which is specifically listed or that falls under any of the generic types listed in the regulation.

Here are the providers approved via the regulation, along with some specific examples:

  1. The National Conference of States on Building Codes and Standards.
     
  2. A Federal, Commonwealth or state agency: the US Department of Energy; the Governor’s Center for Local Government Services (PA DCED); the Division of Codes and Standards (NJ DCA).
     
  3. An accredited academic institution: any accredited high school, technical or vocational school, junior college, community college, college or university, or a private school licensed or registered with the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
     
  4. A model code agency or its accredited local chapter: the International Code Council (ICC) and any of its local chapters, or a local chapter accredited by any of the three model code organizations (BOCA, ICBO or SBCCI) which consolidated their operations into the ICC.
     
  5. A trade association representing design professionals or the construction industry: the American Institute of Architects-Pennsylvania; the Pennsylvania Society of Professional Engineers; the Pennsylvania Builders Association; the Pennsylvania Housing Research Center.
     
  6. A national standards writing organization: the American Society of Mechanical Engineers; the National Fire Protection Association.
     
  7. An association serving or representing Commonwealth municipalities: the Pennsylvania League of Cities and Municipalities; the Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs; the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Commissioners; the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors.
     
  8. Testing-providers approved under section 401.6 of the training and certification regulation: Prometric, the ICC, the Pennsylvania Construction Codes Academy, any of the organizations accredited by ASME to certify persons as Qualified Elevator Inspectors, etc.
     

All continuing education providers should take note of the following:

  • The Department’s Training and Certification regulation specifies that an applicant for re-certification must complete from 15 to 45 credit hours of continuing education, at least 1/3 of which must be directly related to his/her code certification categories. Further, one continuing education credit will be granted for each hour of classroom time.
     
  • The regulation requires applicants for re-certification to submit evidence of the following: Name and address of the training provider; date attended; title of the course; subject matter of the course; and, credit hours received.
     
  • It is critical that CE certificates provide sufficient information regarding course content, to enable the Department to determine if a course is related to a specific area of UCC certification (as opposed to a course like "Math Refresher Course for Code Officials" that cannot be counted toward the requirement highlighted in bold letters above).

Additional continuing education providers will be approved by the Department on an ad hoc basis and listed here. The following additional providers have been approved:
