NOTE:   Anyone can take an ICC exam to become a certified inspector.    Most states / jurisdictions will accept this to get a license (if required).

The State of Florida has several additional requirements before you become licensed most notable:

  • 5 years of field experience in each trade.
  • 2 years of field experience in construction and complete a 300-hour Transition Program.


FYI: You do not have to have permission from the State of Florida to take any ICC exams.  If you work for a governmental entity and want to only pay $5.00 to take an exam, then you will have to achieve their permission
