How We Prepare You to Pass Your Exam:

Our two-day Commercial Building Inspector exam prep course is designed to prepare you to pass either the ICC exam for Commercial Building Inspector or Building Plans Examiner. We will teach you the relevant information in a concise, organized, systematic format that has proven to be the most successful ever! If you are doing a RESIDENTIAL Building Inspector exam, please see our 1-day seminar for Residential Building under the "1 & 2 Family Dwelling Combination" inspector category.

We begin by explaining the Code chapter by chapter, demonstrating fundamental principles and interpretations, and then applying specific code provisions to the plans and applicable specifications. Students are continually challenged to think about code applications throughout the course through discussions regarding errors and omissions frequently found at construction sites.

At the conclusion of this course, students will have covered the required information for both the Commercial Building Inspector and Plans Examiner examination.

Students have access to THREE simulated practice exams online (inspector) or written practice test questions (plans examiner) following class at no additional charge. Access to online materials are available for 30 DAYS following student sign-up (or online only) or class date (classroom/live webinar).
