1208-3.1 Certification of building safety inspectors and code enforcement officials.
(a) Certified building safety inspector.
A person who successfully completes the building safety inspector basic training program described in section 1208-3.2(b) of this Subpart within the time required by subdivision (d) of that section shall be certified as a building safety inspector. To maintain such certification, such person must satisfy the building safety inspector in-service training requirements described in section 1208-3.3(b) of this Subpart and any and all advanced in-service training requirements made applicable pursuant to section 1208-3.4 of this Subpart.
(b) Certified code enforcement official.
A person who successfully completes the code enforcement official basic training program described in section 1208-3.2(c) of this Subpart within the time required by subdivision (d) of that section shall be certified as a code enforcement official. To maintain such certification, such person must satisfy the code enforcement official in-service training requirements described in section 1208-3.3(c) of this Subpart and any and all advanced in-service training requirements made applicable pursuant to section 1208-3.4 of this Subpart.
(c) Increase in level of certification.
A certified building safety inspector may change his or her certification to certified code enforcement official by:
(1) notifying the department in writing that he or she intends to change his or her level of certification to certified code enforcement official;
(2) completing the additional basic training courses required for certification as a code enforcement official within such time period as shall be prescribed by the secretary (provided, however, that if the certified building safety inspector previously held certification as a code enforcement official, he or she will not be required to take such additional basic training courses if he or she takes an examination in each such additional basic training course and achieves a passing grade on each such examination). A change in level of certification shall be effective when the secretary issues a certificate confirming such change. A certified building safety inspector who changes his or her level of certification to certified code enforcement official must thereafter maintain such certification by satisfying the in-service training requirements and advanced in-service training requirements applicable to a certified code enforcement official.
(d) Decrease in level of certification.
A certified code enforcement official may change his or her certification to building safety inspector by notifying the department that he or she elects to decrease the level of his or her certification. Such notification shall be in writing and shall include the certified code enforcement official's agreement that when the decrease in level of certification becomes effective, he or she will not perform any enforcement activities other than those defined as building safety inspector enforcement activities. Once the notification is received by the department, the status of the individual's certification as a code enforcement official shall be inactive. A certified code enforcement official who changes his or her certification to certified building safety inspector must thereafter maintain such certification by satisfying the in-service training requirements and advanced in-service training requirements required for certified building safety inspectors.
