How We Prepare You to Pass Your Exam:

Our two-day class for Commercial Electrical Inspector is designed to prepare you to pass either the ICC exam for Commercial Electrical Inspector or Plans Examiner. The item bank of questions are largely "cross focused" on similar code subject matter - therefore we prepare our students by teaching the relevant information in a concise, organized, systematic format that has proven to be the most successful ever! If you are doing a RESIDENTIAL Inspector exam, see our 1-day seminar for Residential Electrical under the "1 & 2 Family Dwelling" inspector category.

The course will review the National Electrical Code and other references, demonstrating fundamental principles and interpretations, then applying specific code provisions to the plans and applicable specifications.

Actual photographs and video clips are included throughout the program in order to assure that the student understands complex code situations and the consequence when key review or inspection principles are overlooked in the office or field.

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

Students have access to unlimited 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).
