Dagger News Service from Harford County, Maryland, says students at Harford Technical High School are receiving early training in the modular home industry. After building a home in their construction program, the students received additional training from the Department of Inspections, Licenses and Permits (DILP) sufficient to pass state proficiency exams in their specific area of study. Jim Ellwood, Plans Reviewer with DILP, who worked with the students, convinced the International Codes Council (ICC) to send code books and study materials to the school. The ICC was so impressed, the students were invited to tour ICC headquarters in Washington, D.C., where they received certificates of recognition for their achievements, and participated in a roundtable discussion about code enforcement and building green homes. Jim Ellwood was honored by the Maryland Building Officials Association (MBOA) for his work with the students. T he house the students built was later donated to Habitat for Humanity.
