Aptly named, this unit is responsible for the licensing and continuing education of individuals who enforce the Uniform Construction Code (UCC); it also provides for the licensing and continuing education of Housing Code officials and inspectors.

The unit coordinates educational programs and distributes information concerning the requirements to be a licensed code official within New Jersey. Courses required for licensure are provided through the county college system and administered through this unit. Information regarding the most recent Statewide schedule of courses can be found below or by calling our office.
While all necessary information for licensing is contained on this Web page, as well as all the required application forms, we are unable to accept on-line applications at this time. To apply for a license you must either call the office for a hard copy application package, or download and print the applicable forms and mail them into the licensing office.  A candidate for a license of any type issued pursuant to the UCC shall submit an application to the Code Officials Licensing Unit,  accompanied by a required non-refundable application fee.

Continuing Education

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.

In addition, architects, engineers and contractors are also able to attend seminars at a nominal cost. A special schedule of seminars is available each semester exclusively for this group.
