Residential One and Two Family Dwelling (Combination) Inspector:
The Residential Combination Inspector (in Florida known as the “One and Two Family Dwelling”) certification is for persons who inspect each discipline (Building, Plumbing, Mechanical and Electrical) for compliance with governing codes. Five years’ experience as a registered or certified state general, building, or residential contractor (or as a job superintendent or project manager) in a supervisory capacity that included operational control and direction of building, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing personnel or subcontractors on residential projects is needed for eligibility. See Florida Chapter 61G19-6.017. Apply at the state for the “1 & 2 Family Dwelling” inspector/plans examiner.
A Residential Combination (One and Two Family Dwelling) Inspector is required to take EACH of the following four exams: Residential Building Inspector, Residential Plumbing Inspector, Residential Mechanical Inspector, and Residential Electrical Inspector. In addition, if you are applying through the State of Florida for a Standard Certificate, you will also need to take the Florida Principles & Practices exam.

How We Prepare You to Pass Your Exam:
Our four-day seminar is designed to prepare you to pass the ICC Residential examinations required for the Residential One and Two Family Dwelling Inspector exams the first time! The item bank of questions for 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 only sitting for single “residential” exams, choose the appropriate day to attend.
Each day explains the Code chapter-by-chapter for the specific discipline, 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 all four of the Residential Inspector examinations. NOTE: If you are taking a Residential Inspector exam in ONE of the disciplines, you may attend just that one day ($250/day) course.
Students have access to 6 months for all four days online with unlimited practice exams following class.
