Municipal-level agencies throughout much of the United States use the International Building Code (IBC) to inform local regulations. The IBC is updated every three years, with changes trickling down to partner organizations shortly after that.
As a building inspector, maintaining an up-to-date understanding of the building code is one of your most important responsibilities. It’s for this reason that ACIA-registered construction inspectors are required to complete 36 credit hours of continuing education every three-year renewal period. Many other professional associations maintain similar requirements.
Prioritizing Continuing Education
For building inspectors, code enforcement training shouldn’t be an afterthought. Your knowledge of the code is critical to your ability to do your job right. Continuing education isn’t just a nuisance requirement.
That’s why it’s important to work with a code enforcement training provider dedicated to quality content. At Lorman Education Services, we work with some of the best-trained instructors in the business, many of whom come to us from major municipal planning departments as well as prominent national construction law firms. With an intimate understanding of state-level code and zoning issues, our faculty members provide the context necessary to translate theory into practice, helping you do your job and manage risk better.

Code Enforcement Training Made Easy With Lorman Education Services
For busy building inspectors, code enforcement training must be more than just incisive — it must be accessible, too. Training is essential, but it can't take time away from your day-to-day responsibilities. That’s why we offer two convenient ways to learn. Our live programs provide direct contact with our faculty, giving you the opportunity to participate and ask questions relevant to your training.
We also host an extensive archive of OnDemand training programs that allow you to study at your own pace. OnDemand training ranges from previously recorded programs to white papers, slideshow presentations, and technical manuals. OnDemand content can be downloaded or streamed at any time, making it an excellent choice for busy professionals who aren’t available to participate in live training programs when they happen.
Our online code enforcement training offers a mix of state-specific and more general courses. In addition to courses like “Major Changes to the California Building Code” and “New York Building Code Update,” other programming of interest to building inspectors includes “Building Code Conundrums and Discrepancies” and “Building Code Compliance Specifications.”
