Code Inspection

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 continuing education credits for veteran inspectors and classes aspiring inspectors need to work in the field of code inspection – building, plumbing, electrical and mechanical inspection; fire code; general contractor exam preparation; and administration classes.
