ICC CALGreen Certifications

In partnership with the California Building Officials (CALBO), ICC is offering two new CALGreen Certification Exams that are intended to validate the competency of inspectors and plan reviewers on their understanding and ability to implement the provisions of CALGreen:
  • CALGreen Inspector certification
  • CALGreen Plans Examiner certification

Both exams cover such topics as general requirements of CALGreen, residential building systems, and non-residential building systems.

These exams are executed via computer-based testing (CBT).  More information is available at http://www.iccsafe.org/Certification/Pages/miscexams.aspx
