Advanced Commercial Property Code Inspection Exam Prep

Although private commercial property inspectors are not responsible for determining code compliance, many inspectors enjoy being able to recognize code violations, especially on new-construction inspections.  This compilation of commercial code-related questions educates the inspector by allowing him or her to look up the answer to each question in the 2009 IBC, then immediately check his/her answer against the correct answer.  
No one is expected to have the 2009 IBC memorized... which is why the ICC exams are open-book. This exam prep tool is best used with a copy of the 2009 IBC (International Code Council's 2009 International Building Code).  It's a useful preparation tool for those inspectors who are studying for the ICC Standard Building Contractor (B) Exam ID 615.  Some local municipalities have their own commercial contractor-licensing exams.  This online tool is an excellent method of preparing for such contractor exams. 
InterNACHI® also recommends its free online Commercial Property Inspection Prerequisite Course.  This is not a "course," per se, but an exam prep tool, so it has no final exam or Certificate of Completion associated with it.  This prep tool is almost entirely outside the International Standards of Practice for Inspecting Commercial Properties, as commercial property inspectors are not responsible for code compliance.
In keeping with InterNACHI's commitment to education, The Advanced Commercial Code Inspection Prep Tool  is open and free to members, and can be taken again and again, without limit.
