A training program supported by the International Code Council teaches high school students the importance of building codes and provides graduates with an advantage in the job market. The pilot program for the High School Technical Training Program began in 2009 in Maryland. The curriculum covers four major construction fields contained in the ICC's International Residential Code: building, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical. Forty students earned at least one certificate in the four areas of study in 2012. This year, masonry was added to the curriculum.
