Overview

About the Product

2017 CODiE Award Winner for Best Emerging Education Technology System. Developed in partnership with the International Code Council and the National Fire Protection Association, the DELMAR ONLINE TRAINING SIMULATION: RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION CODES, is a 3-D, immersive simulation that teaches learners how to apply the latest Building and Electrical Codes in residential construction. Based on the 2015 International Residential Code (IRC®) and 2014 National Electric Code (NEC®). Learners test their knowledge of related Codes as they virtually navigate the site and inspect structural components for compliance. Randomized Code violations offer a unique learning experience each time (there are three different difficulty modes to choose from) and explanations are included that provide real-world consequences if a Code is not applied correctly. Instructors can receive reporting to assess students’ comprehension and progress.
