Construction Inspector Training Field Expectations

While the housing industry may have experienced a downturn in the last few years, classes in construction inspector training are still going strong. Students are coming in from the construction industry and signing up for certification classes that will allow them to conduct inspections of drainage systems, buildings, houses, and even highways for health and safety codes. While there is no one set education path for learning how to be a construction inspector, there are standards that most employers look for in the people they hire.


While you can get a bachelor's degree in construction, this is usually not necessary to obtain jobs in construction inspection. It's been found that most employers are requesting either an associate's degree from an accredited school or a certification from a formal training class. The basics of construction are taught to those wishing to have this certification through lectures, labs and work experience through co-ops.



Students can expect their construction inspector training certification program to take about one year to complete. The class will prepare the student to pass the certification testing that most states require in order to inspect a home or building. The student will learn expertise in such areas as electrical and structural construction, plumbing, framing and inspection regulations. Additional specialities are available with more education giving the student more options in the job market.

The job market is best for those who have had between 2 and 5 years of construction experience under a manager. Construction managers and inspectors with a great deal of experience are in the biggest demand by local and state governments. In some cases, sub-field experience such as transportation, bridges or residential housing may be required for employment.

Each state has its own set of requirements for construction inspector training. However, it's general practice that the applicants must have experience and meet certain education requirements before he or she can test for their certificate. Whether you go with a construction inspector training academy, school or associates degree, continuing education will typically be required in order to maintain your certificate. Wages in these fields typically start around $50,000/year and increase with experience and education to near $100,000/year.
