The center is located at 168 S. Main St. in Coolidge near the public library and post office. The class will be held on Thursdays from 6:10-9:30 p.m. from Aug. 23 through Dec. 13.
Current inspectors requiring certification by their employers or those seeking to enter the building inspection field should strongly consider taking the course.
The course covers standard building requirements to ensure safety for occupants of detached one-and-two family dwellings. Traditionally, students have taken the course in preparation for the national certification exam that allows them to become certified building inspectors in the public and private sector.
Additionally, as the number of rental homes increase, so does the importance of learning the codes associated with them. For a house to be used for rental purposes it must meet minimum code standards for occupancy.
During the course, landlords and property managers will learn useful information about local housing rental codes and permit requirements for needed improvements and repairs.
In keeping with the certification requirements of the International Code Council, the required text for the class will be the 2009 International Residential Code for One-and-Two Family Dwellings.
Tuition for the three-credit course is $216 for Arizona residents.
For students interested in taking the voluntary examination offered by the International Code Council for Building Inspection Certification, the course instructor will provide dates and times for the exam.
