Everyone deserves to live and work in safe buildings. SDCI staff have been involved in the creation of a first-in-the-nation program designed to provide in-depth training tailored to prepare individuals for jobs in Washington State building departments. This three-year program awards a certificate upon satisfactory completion of each three quarters (one class per quarter) for a total of three certificates. By completing an International Code Council Certification exam for each certificate awarded, you have the option of gaining Accreditation through the Washington Association of Building Officials (WABO), up to a total of three accreditations. If you or someone you know is interested in finding a rewarding career in protecting the public as a Building Code Official, enroll in this three-year all online program to fill a continuing demand for qualified Permit Technicians, Building Inspectors, and Plans Examiners. For more information, see the WABO website.
