Do I need a permit for my building project? Curious as to why? Puzzled by what determines when you need a permit and when you don’t? Then these information-packed classes are for you! Gain useful knowledge about the ins and outs of permitting by taking one or both webinars and become your own permitting expert.

This series of two webinars will give you a comprehensive understanding of building permits and the permitting process. Building Permits Primer, which takes place on Tuesday, June 22nd, will cover when you need a permit, why you need one, and what you need to know before applying. The class will talk about building and related projects, including permits for fencing, electrical systems, heating and cooling (HVAC) and plumbing.

Residential Building Permits and Inspections takes place the following Thursday, June 24th, and will focus on residential properties and inspections. This class will cover which residential projects require permits and how long they last and will also delve into building project inspections, including when inspections take place and who are the inspectors. You’ll also learn how to find your property lines! Both webinars will be held from noon-1:30 p.m.
