Interested in being a police officer, firefighter or perhaps an inspector or building official? Are you a person wanting to serve others in the community in which you live?
Code Enforcement Officers play a vital role in your municipality’s / county’s economic development and a major role in the comprehensive plan of your city. This profession also contains the exciting elements of crime fighting and fire prevention.
Supported by the Texas Department of State Health Services, our basic code training is the best available both in the state of Texas and beyond. Our instructional design specialists have worked with subject matter experts to produce high-quality courses for a diverse customer base. Our course will prepare each student to successfully complete and pass the state licensing exam. Our exceptional curriculum has afforded us the opportunity to contract and create other surrounding Region VI states with code enforcement curriculum.
Code officials possess strong leadership, management and interpersonal skills. Excellent communication skills (both oral and written) are necessary as code officials interact with both the public and the media.
"You presented the training material for the Basic Code Enforcement Officer Examination at the City of Garland back in July. I was somewhat apprehensive about taking the test, but I passed my examination and am currently awaiting my registration with the State. Thank you for the time you spent and the training you presented. It was invaluable information that will serve me for years to come."
