Workshops

The PHRC offers workshops at varying locations across the commonwealth of Pennsylvania to meet the training needs of the residential construction industry.  Full- and half-day programs are available. Registration fees apply. Continuing education credits awarded for participation vary depending on the presentation topic.

To meet state-wide training needs the PHRC partners with the Pennsylvania Codes Construction Academy (PCCA) and other organizations to reach all members of the industry. 

Many of our programs are organized through and hosted by PCCA. These workshops – designated as “PCCA Workshop” in front of the title – are the same materials as the PHRC Workshops and are intended for all members of the residential construction industry, including code officials, builders, and design professionals.

Each workshop registration link and corresponding customer service will thus be either through PCCA or PHRC.  With any questions please contact the workshop administrators:
