Code Inspection Courses
The career outlook for the building inspection and code enforcement industry is bright! Many North Carolina towns are in need of new, trained code enforcement officers due to the increase in business and residential construction projects, and because experienced inspectors are reaching retirement age.
Wake Tech offers both CEU credits for inspectors already in the field, as well as classes aspiring inspectors need to be prepared to work in the field of code inspection -- a career with plenty of opportunities. Wake Tech offers building, plumbing, electrical, and mechanical inspection; fire code; general contractor exam prep; and administration classes.
