SPRING 2008

Hotel and Multiple Dwelling Inspectors and Housing Code Officials

Continuing Education Courses


SPRING 2008

Welcome Students! In the summer of 2005, an amendment appeared in the New Jersey registry regarding mandatory continuing education seminars for Licensed Inspectors and Officials for each three-year license cycle. Continuing education requirements have been increased to better meet the professional needs of Licensed Inspectors, Officials and the public. What are the Continuing Education Requirements for Inspectors and Officials? • Hotel and Multiple Dwelling Inspectors are required to take 1.5 CE units of technical seminars which are 3 technical courses of your choice. • Housing Code Officials are required to take 1.0 CEUs of administrative seminars in addition to 1.5 CE units of technical seminars, which is 2 administrative and 3 technical seminars of your choice. • The Division of Fire Safety (DFS) and Uniform Construction Code (UCC) fire inspectors are allowed to use one of their DFS or UCC courses towards renewal of their Multiple Dwelling license. This can be used only once per cycle and only three cycles in total. Licensees will be asked which course they wish to receive credit for at the time of their license renewal to satisfy 0.5 of their 1.5 CEU requirements. What about Reciprocal Credits? • The Division of Fire Safety will award reciprocal administrative or technical credits accordingly for all seminars of this program. You must provide your Division of Fire Safety license number when you attend the seminar. There is no reciprocity the other way around. • Reciprocity between the UCC and Multiple Dwelling programs exists only for the administrative CEU’s. When are Continuing Education Seminars Offered? The spring semester series is scheduled between March and June 2007 and consists of six technical and three administrative seminars. Where are Continuing Education Seminars Given? • Hotel conference facilities throughout the state, as close to your home as possible. • Each seminar is repeated several times in different locations. Hotel selections are based on location, quality and availability. Who is Offering the Seminars? Courses are conducted by the NJ Department of Community Affairs in cooperation with Middlesex County College. Each seminar has been developed with state oversight and reflects state-approved content. Expired Licenses If your license is expired, you must pay a late fee to the NJ Department of Community Affairs before registering. If you take a seminar without paying the late fee, you will not earn any CE Units. For additional information regarding late fees, please contact DCA at (609)984-7834. Seminars are free of charge for current DCA license holders.
