Building Code Enforcement Officials Exam Schedules, Applications, Study Materials, and Testing Policies


The Office of Education and Data Management (OEDM) administers all aspects of the credentialing exams for the Office of the State Building Inspector, including the tests for the Pre-Licensure Training Program and the licensure exams offered each quarter (Quarterly Exams). 

Our office works with the State Building Inspector to review Quarterly Exam applications.  Once your exam application is approved, we will register you for the next Quarterly Exam and send you a confirmation letter.  You must bring your confirmation letter and photo ID to be admitted into the exam. If your application is denied, you will be notified in writing of the decision.
