Building Inspection Application

The application period is open for the 2017-2018 academic year. Follow the instructions on our application form.

We recommend that program applicants have two years of experience in the construction industry and must have at least a high school diploma or GED.

Enrollment is limited and priority given to those who meet the application deadlines.

Criminal Background Check/Drug Testing

Although this program does not require background checks or drug testing you might want to familiarize yourself with how future employers use these procedures. Job applicants and existing employees as well as volunteers may be asked to submit to background checks. Whether you are hired or promoted for a job may depend on the information revealed in a background check. For some jobs, screening is required by federal or state law. The current emphasis on security and safety has dramatically increased the number of employment background checks conducted. For more information, visit
