This one hour distance learning course covers permit and inspection requirements in the Florida Building Code. Permitting and inspections in Florida have been complicated subjects for decades. In addition to permitting and inspection requirements, there are special requirements such as Threshold Inspections that must be understood. An evolving area for study is the provision of plans examination and inspection services by third parties. When you have completed this course you will have an understanding of the permit and inspection requirements, the Threshold Building Inspection law, and Private Provider.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course participants will be able to:

  • Describe building code required permits, threshold inspectors and inspections
  • Identify other permit requirements including catch all, certifications of wind load, and moving buildings
  • Explain private provider dynamics including notifications, inspections, certificate of compliance, stop work orders and other restrictions
