    Jerry and Jerry, thank you both for your replys. The reason I ask, is that an inspector in my area makes a big deal out of being ICBO certified. I do believe at one time he was but when I go to the ICC website I can not find his name as a member so I would assume he has not kept he membership/certifacation up to date.

    Do you know if old ICBO credentials carrired over to ICC when the organizations merged?

    You had to apply to the ICC for the new ICC matching certifications, which were given on a one-to-one basis depending on what your previous certifications were.

    If you did not apply, you did not get an ICC certification. I don't know if the ICC will still do that to old certifications, unless maybe their continuing education requirements have been met and kept up, it's only 15 hours per year/45 hours every three years (you don't need 15 hours every year, you can get them all at once, it's the 45 hours in 3 years which counts).

    You know Joe, your a total disappointment. Someone with your background (electrical contractor) should be on this board answering questions and helping people on electrical and other areas. Instead, all of your posts usually end with you calling someone a name or bashing them because they don't see your point of view.

    Knowing what you do about electrical and now code issues; turn that knowledge into helping others instead of getting into knock-down brawls.

    Just one mans opinion.

    I do that, just not here, the software & class material my partner & I have developed has helped scores of home inspectors become ICC Certified, I also teach within my local ASHI chapter and my partner is President of Florida NACHI where he teaches.

    Here on this message board though the lessons are political as opposed to technical, I feel that my job here is to present and challenge others to see beyond the association rhetoric and think freely, especially in regards to home inspector licensing. It is a thankless task, but someone must do it, so save your disappointment for your children.

    Darren... By the way, what exit?

    The timing on this subject is interesting as I just got my ICC certification 3 year renewal notice in yesterday’s mail. I scanned some of the materials so that it may help others understand what their current protocol is. It appears that coming up with the CEUs is a piece of cake as in the old days we had to take a short exam and pass it for renewal. As a building code instructor for 14 years I have also helped, prodded and cajoled many of my students into getting themselves ICC certified and in the jurisdictional world that's a must. I've long held the belief that all serious private section inspectors should at least attempt obtaining certifications as it's certainly not rocket science, but show professional intent and absolutely will result in making one a more knowledgeable real estate inspector, not better, just more knowledgeable. Knowledge is the main ingredient for success, but only when you know how and when to employ it.

    Billy Sunday,

    If that were the case you would be able to catch me lowering standards in an attempt to sell folks like you educational products, mark my word... That will never happen, besides you ain't got enough money.

    I mean the idea of selling educational products to blockheads like you is quite tempting because folks like you are a veritable bonanza of unending free money, taking course after course and never achieving anything, but that would take away from those who will still be here next year.

    No, I am here to share my ideas in regards to the ideals of free thinking and the sham of home inspector licensing, nothing more or less.


    Joe.

    Why would I do that? I have no respect for any message board that would allow me to post anyway.

    Question for you guys who have taken the ICC cert exams:

    Do you recall if in the test question(s), a table is specifically referenced in the question for you to look up or do you have to find the table on your own....just curious...I'm studying right now to take the Residential, B1 exam.

    thanks,

    thanks,



    You will need to find the table on your own. Before the exam I created a Table Index listing the Table & page in the code book it was located then inserted this index into my 3-ring binder code book, you might want to do the same.

    Good luck with the B1!

    Thanks, Joseph...

    Good idea about the index!

    By the way, I noticed that ICC says 17% of the questions on B1 will be on Public Safety, however, I don't see anything in the IRC 2006 about public safety or in the study guide. What am I missing?

    Hey Joe,

    You be around? I'm curious if there is anything in the IRC 2006 about Public Safety as I the IRC B1 exam said there will be many questions on it but yet I don't see it in the IRC.

    I think you mean "occupant safety" and I suggest you thoroughly read 2006 IRC Chapter 3.
    Good luck.

    Clay,

    Go here: ICC Online | Certification & Testing
    Scroll down to the bottom to the section titled Public Safety and you will see a list of the things you need to know. As Jerry M pointed out, you'll find those things in Chapter 3 of the IRC.
