Class Information for Continuing Education

APPROVED TRAINING /  COURSES

The NCOWCICB has adopted a professional growth hours pre-approved policy.  The goal is to assist contractors and inspectors in their professional careers.  Prior to taking classes, contractors and inspectors can now select classes that the Board has already reviewed and approved for continuing education for renewal of certifications.

Pre-approved course are available to you as listed below.  Contact information for each provider is listed at the bottom.

The NCOWCICB has opted to not give “deemed approved” status to any organization or agency.  All proposed classes need to be submitted to the Board for approval.

Anyone attending these classes must register with the entity offering the class. Contact information for the providers are listed at the bottom of this page.

Please contact NCOWCICB prior to attending any class not listed below to assure class has been approved for credit hours.

For all new applicants, the application for certification along with the certification fee should be submitted to NCOWCICB prior to taking either the 18 Hour Intro Class or Inspector Class.  From the home page click on "How to Receive Certification" to print the application for certification.  The fee paid to the class provider DOES NOT include the certification fee.
