The Continuing Education program's mission is to further the professional development of code enforcement personnel by providing quality educational offerings through continuing education programs for licensed inspectors and their support staff.

Continuing education seminars are scheduled and made available semi-annually to all licensed inspectors in order to meet requirements for license renewal. Training is also made available to new members of Construction Boards of Appeal and to annual permit holders.

In addition, architects, engineers and contractors are also able to attend seminars at a nominal cost.
