The ABCB stated on their website that the NCC has moved to a three year amendment cycle and that the seminars will focus on changes coming into effect from May 1.
The seminars will be held from February until March in every capital city, starting in Canberra and finishing in Melbourne. The Canberra seminar is being held on February 17, the Hobart seminar is being held on February 19, two seminars will be held in Brisbane on February 23 & 24, the Darwin seminar will be held on February 26, two seminars will be held in Perth on March 3 & 4, the Adelaide seminar will be held on March 7, and two seminars will be held in Sydney and in Melbourne on March 9 & 10 and March 16 & 17 respectively.
The ABCB held similar seminars last year prior to when the 2015 NCC came into effect and was the first Code to be freely available online.
