As a building inspector, your understanding of the code is critical to your ability to do your job right. The International Building Code (IBC) — the basis of most municipal and state-level regulations — is updated every three years. For this reason, it’s important to keep your training up-to-date at all times. What's more, the code is a complex and comprehensive document — even if you’re current on your training, there’s always room to learn more.
Whatever your reasons for pursuing continuing education, Lorman Education Services’ building code inspector training is an efficient and convenient way to learn online. Explore your training options on this page, or contact our customer response team directly to find out more.
