Inspector by Examination (BCAIB 1)

Certification is required to perform inspections in any or all of the following categories: building, electrical, mechanical, plumbing, or one and two family dwelling.

Application Requirements:
 
  • AGE: Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and be of good moral character.
  • EDUCATION/EXPERIENCE: Applicants must verify five separate years of experience for each category of licensure they are applying for on the Work Experience form. For individuals who seek standard licensure by completing a board-approved cross-training program and taking the required examination, they must currently hold a standard license, and they must provide proof of completion of the board-approved cross-training program in the certification category sought. If post-secondary education is going to be used to qualify for licensure, official transcripts must be included with the application.
  • WORK EXPERIENCE FORM: Work experience detail provided in applications is often too general and is missing hands-on experience. The person certifying your experience should be specific when explaining your duties and actual hands-on experience. In order to process your application more quickly, and not have your application returned to you, describe work experience in detail, including hands-on, supervisory or management responsibilities.

  • EXAMINATION: Applicants must take and pass the technical and the Florida principles & practice examinations. For more information regarding the Florida principles and practice examination, please review the BCAIB P&P Examination Candidate Information Booklet.
  • FEE: Pay the required fee as provided in the application. Make check payable to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation. Military veterans, their spouses and Florida National Guard members may be eligible for a fee waiver, fee reimbursement, and/or fee discount. Please visit our DBPR Military Services page for more information.
