  • REQUIREMENTS: Applicant must hold standard certification as a residential inspector; must have passed the State principles and practices examination; and holds certification as an International Code Council (ICC) Residential Plans Examiner.

  • ENDORSEMENT: Endorsement is licensure of individuals who have already taken and passed a technical examination similar to the technical examination required in Florida or currently hold an equivalent certification issued by another state or territory of the United States with a minimum of 10 years of experience and have passed an examination administrated by the International Code Council and seeking a standard license by endorsement. You will be required to take and pass the Florida Principles and Practice examination if you are approved by the board. For more information regarding the Florida Principles and Practice examination, please review the BCAIB P&P Examination Candidate Information Booklet.
