Building Inspection Program

Preserving the Integrity of Our Built Environment

Chemeketa’s Building Inspection Technology Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree gives you the training to pursue certification and employment as a building inspector or plans examiner at the residential and/or commercial level.

NOTE: This program does not prepare you for work as a residential real estate sales inspector.

The degree program can be completed in 21 months if you attend full-time. However, there are entry-level skill expectations for reading, writing, and mathematics. The length of time you take to complete the program may depend on your skills in these areas.


The application period is open for the 2017-18 academic year.

To assess the time you will need to complete the program and meet our special admission requirements and enrollment limits, e-mail us or contact the Chemeketa Polk Center (Dallas) at 503.623.5567.
