How We Prepare You to Pass Your Exam:

Our one-day "cram" seminar is designed to prepare you to pass either the ICC Commercial Mechanical Inspectors or Plans Examiner examination the first time you take it. 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 Mechanical Inspector exam, please see our 1-day seminar for Residential Mechanical under the "1 & 2 Family Dwelling Combination" inspector category.

You will learn about the Codes chapter by chapter, demonstrating fundamental principles and interpretations, 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 the construction site.

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

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).
