ICC Offers Floodplain Inspector Certification
The International Code Council (ICC) has developed Coastal Construction Flood Plain Inspector certification, which indicates “knowledge of general construction provisions, special high wind and load path continuity, special flood hazard areas, detached and accessory structures, and governmental regulations.” Certified individuals will be able to ensure that homes and businesses meet relevant codes, including special requirements in high wind zones, as well as assess damage caused by hurricanes and floods, says ICC. For more information, contact Jim Slaght, ICC certification programs administrator, at 888-422-7233, ext. 5221.
