I've decided to study for and take the 2009 IRC (B-1) and 2009 IBC (B-2) Building Inspection Exams sometime in 2011, in order to better myself on building construction/inspection codes. This won't cost a lot and will provide me with some knowledge I've desired for a long time. Our building department reports to me, so it will help me communicate at their level.
How about you? Are you certified in any of the building inspection areas? Is it the International Codes or a specific state code (New York, California, Florida...)? Keeping up with this type of certification isn't expensive either at something like $30 every two years.
