Electrical Inspector Training & Certification

We provide specific training for local, state, federal or private electrical inspectors. Take advantage of Marty’s 30 years of electrical inspection and plan review experience as a certified code official.

Have your inspectors been professionally trained? We’re not asking if they are licensed (lots of people are licensed) or have a certificate hanging on the wall. We’re asking if he or she has been professionally trained by a certified professional code trainer?

Marty offers a comprehensive training program for your team or department that includes:

  • Understanding The National Electrical Code: Marty will give a comprehensive 24-40 hour training course on chapters 1-9 of the NEC
  • How to interact and communicate fairly and professionally with contractors and homeowners.
  • When should exceptions be given
  • Am I enforcing the code or giving an opinion
  • If you cite it, be prepared to write it
  • How to properly interpret a code rule: If the code official doesn’t fully understand how to use definitions and terms, he or she may not be giving an interpretation, but instead, an opinion.
  • Looking at other mandated codes besides the NEC
  • What’s the difference between code and a standard: NFPA 70 is code, but NFPA 110 is a standard.
  • Best and fair inspection practices when additional work is being installed in an existing building.
  • Understanding “Change of Use” and its implications on existing buildings and or structures.
  • Q & A
