Building Inspector and Plans Examiner Certificate Program Created 

Begins August 31


Building codes and standards are the primary means by which building construction is regulated for the health and safety of the general public. 

Building inspectors and code enforcement professionals ensure that building construction, alterations and repairs comply with building codes and ordinances, zoning regulations and contract specifications. With the steady increase of retirements of building inspectors over the next several years, it is predicted that many

towns, cities and municipalities across NH will struggle to fill the void. The New Hampshire Building Officials Association has worked closely with the NH Technical Institute in Concord to develop a training program for building inspectors/plans examiners. This program should appeal to anyone who might be looking for a career change, or to those who are considering post-secondary training/education for jobs in the construction industry.


The 18-credit-hour certificate program prepares Building Inspectors and Plans Examiners to critically examine permit applications and plans for residential, commercial, and other building types and to subsequently ensure that the construction of buildings with permits is conducted in accordance and within the provisions of relevant building codes. The Certificate will be supported and promoted by the New Hampshire Building Officials Association, the International Code Council, the NH Municipal Association and Town Managers Associations.
