The State of New York requires that Code Enforcement officials complete a BASIC TRAINING Program in order to become certified. The program consists of the following six courses:

9A: Introduction to Code Enforcement Practices Part 1

9B: Introduction to Code Enforcement Practices Part 2

9C: Inspection Procedures for Existing Buildings

9D: General Building Principles

9E: Residential Code of New York State

9F: Building Code of New York State

Each course is 21 hours in length and is offered at various locations throughout the state. Most of the courses have prerequisites, listed in the course description, that have to be met before the course can be taken. Each course has a competence exam. To receive credit for each course, an individual must be present for the entire course and must pass the exam. A certification number is issued after the successful completion of all six basic training courses. The Basic Training Program must be completed within one year or all of that training is forfeited.

Certification as a Code Compliance Technician (Fire Inspector) requires the successful completion of Courses 9A, 9B and 9C, and qualifies an individual to conduct fire and property maintenance inspections.

Certification as a Code Enforcement Official requires the successful completion of all six courses (9A through 9F), and qualifies an individual for all aspects of code enforcement.
