PASS Training Webinar
The PASS program has been designed to streamline permitting throughout the Central Valley region. It provides a more efficient and effective plan review process by implementing a clear and concise set of standards for document content and organization.
There are TWO levels of PASS Training:
"TI" ALL PASS participants start with the TI level; this level covers Tenant Improvement and Small Commercial Projects, and includes the background of the PASS concept and principles.
"NC" The NC level expands the project types to include any size New Commercial buildings, Additions to Commercial Buildings, and New Multifamily Residential Buildings. The TI level training must be completed PRIOR TO the NC training.

Im not familiar with the Zoom platform. Where can I find out more in advance?
Visit the Zoom website www.zoom.us; there are video introductions under meetings. We will be using the meeting function (which is the simplest interface) not the video webinar or zoom room functions. Using zoom requires you to load a small program to your computer; so you should sign on at least few minutes early, as the sessions start on time. You can join the meeting using phone or computer audio, but we recommend using the computer audio.
After you sign up on Brown Paper Tickets, youll get an email with a link to join the webinar at the scheduled time and date.
During the webinar, you will be muted when you join automatically; this is to control feedback and background noise. If you would like to ask a question, you can unmute yourself; please remute after your question. There is also a chat function, accessed from the "more menu item" (three dots).
