Code Training/New Construction Inspection

ProTrain Online


If you are interested in working as a building inspector doing IRC (International Residential Code) Inspections, use our materials to pass the International Code Council's (ICC) IRC Examination. Learn code provisions from actual real-life scenes and defects. That way, when you get out on site, you are familiar with what you are inspecting. Also, use our extensive, specially designed and field tested IRC Index to increase your chances of passing the ICC certification exam. Our IRC Index goes well beyond the index in the IRC book.
