SPECIAL INSPECTION CEU CREDITS

What is an ICC Preferred Provider?

The Preferred Provider Program (PPP) focuses on training opportunities offered by various categories of ICC-approved education providers, which collectively form the ICC Preferred Provider Network (PPN). PPP recognizes and promotes ICC-approved educational offerings by a variety of Providers as they relate to codes, standards and guidelines, as well as building construction materials, products and methods.

The Operating Engineers Training Trust is now authorized to conduct training events and issue continuing education units (CEUs) to special inspectors holding certifications from the International Code Council (ICC). As is required every three years, special inspectors holding ICC certifications must obtain and report a minimum number of CEUs in order to retain their certifications. The Training Trust has been designated as an ICC Preferred Provider--and as such--is now authorized to conduct CEU qualifying events.
