“Bridging the gap between General Contracting and the NC Building Codes"
General Contractor and Inspector Continuing Education

Our instructors are either currently or have been NC Code Officials and are very familiar with Construction Regulation in NC. We realized one of the major disconnects in the building industry is the relationship between code officials and contractors. Being contractors ourselves for many years, we've learned that understanding the NC Codes is key to running a successful construction business. Navigating those requirements along with the permitting and inspection process is something we know all about and strive to bring that knowledge to our students both Contractors and Code Officials alike. Let us help you, sign up for our CE classes either in person or online today!

Elective C.E. CLasses

Our classes were written by one of our instructors who has taught Code Officials for decades and has been an Building Code Official for more than 25 years. All our instructors have fast backgrounds as both Code Officials and General Contractors in NC. They have also been actively involved in the Residential and Commercial Code development in NC.
