Construction Inspectors

Advancement Prospects

The federal, state, and large city governments provide formal training programs for their construction inspectors to keep them abreast of new building code developments and to broaden their knowledge of construction materials, practices, and inspection techniques. Inspectors for small agencies can upgrade their skills by attending state-conducted training programs or taking college or online courses. An engineering degree is usually required to become a supervisory inspector. Inspectors may also advance by establishing their own consulting businesses.
