2023 CALBO Education Weeks Recap
Another Great Annual Gathering with Hybrid Attedance!
The building-safety community recently came together both virtually and in person to partake in the Education Weeks during the fall of 2023. These gatherings featured a comprehensive selection of eighteen new or updated courses, led by seasoned instructors. These courses delved into a range of technical skills and code updates, providing well-rounded training that CALBO prides itself in delivering each year.
This edition of the Education Weeks introduced two new venues, Burlingame in the North and Costa Mesa in the South. These locations not only offered expansive learning spaces for attendees but also provided industry partners with additional open areas to showcase their products and services. With a record-breaking attendance of over 6,500 attendees between the two hybrid events, we express our gratitude to everyone who participated. We hope the courses you attended provided valuable insights.
What’s next for CALBO training?
CTI is planning winter webinars, covering the latest in accessibility, specialized permit technician topics, and mid-cycle code changes. The fall 2024 Education Week registration will launch in spring 2024. Stay tuned for upcoming details and dates.
