Distance Education

The curriculum for our distance education program is similar to the on-campus courses.  It is designed for people in the Special Inspection Industry or people that have a construction background.  This course of instruction helps them study and prepare to take the appropriate certification examination.

We Offer Distance Education Courses of Instruction in the Following Areas:

Code Study Structural Plans Study
  • Structural Masonry Special Inspector
  • Structural Steel and Bolting Special Inspector
  • Structural Welding Special Inspector
  • Reinforced Concrete Special Inspector
  • Prestressed Concrete Special Inspector
  • Spray-applied Fireproofing Special Inspector
  • Structural Masonry
  • Structural Steel and Bolting
  • Structural Welding
  • Reinforced Concrete
  • Prestressed Concrete

About half of either curriculum includes our unique walk-through system.  Our walk through system is written instruction that will guide the student through a step-by-step process, which will help the student to better assimilate and properly research the text and plans material.  This enables the student to better learn the research process and background information of the study question.

Motivation is a key factor in the success of any distance education course and it is essential that any potential student be willing to work independently and get assistance from us as necessary.
