Personnel Certification

The International Code Council maintains one of the best established and most prestigious credentialing programs for construction codes and standards. International Code Council credentialing offers professionals an excellent opportunity to take their career to the next level. Many building departments, jurisdictional agencies and third-party entities recognize professional certification like the International Code Council’s as substantial proof of codes and standards knowledge.

The ICC Assessment Center offers examinations to professionals who wish to obtain licensing, professional certification or otherwise demonstrate their knowledge of a specific skilled trade or subject matter. Tests are available anywhere in the world 24/7 online through the innovative PRONTO remote proctoring system.
