Program Overview

Building Inspection is a critical component in the construction and maintenance of residential, commercial, multi-unit and specialty buildings within California. Each area critical to the proper quality of construction, safety of operation and durability over an appropriate time, is separately inspected, tested and certified as compliant with the International Building Code.

The responsibilities of building inspectors are reflected in the importance of their role in ensuring the safety of inhabitants during earthquakes, floods, and other emergency situations. The safety of firefighters entering buildings is increased by compliance with the building code requirements for proper installation of fire sprinklers and other safety measures. Employment is primarily within city, county and state agencies with some opportunities with larger real estate or construction organizations and has remained steady during the last decade.
