Construction Inspection Workshops


Basic Inspection - Who Should Attend?

This workshop is designed for the beginning inspector who may have 0-3 years of experience. The basics of documentation will be explored along with an overview of the information sources and availability of additional training and how everyone is involved in safety. The workshop will also include a discussion of the role of the inspector from two viewpoints: the agency's and contractor's. Each want the same end result from a construction project, but how do they view the role of the inspector?
