Changes for Contractor/Trades Examinations

Effective January 1, 2018, the Assessment Center has expanded its offerings of National Contractor/Trades examination titles for code years 2012 and 2015.

At the same time, many jurisdiction-specific examination programs will be transitioned to the National standard examination program.  The exams will be equivalent in content to the jurisdiction-specific exams, and will provide a simple registration process and exams that are recognized across the nation.  In addition, ICC will offer select 2009 titles through our new proctored online testing system, PRONTO

Which National Contractor/Trades Exam do I take if my jurisdiction exam is no longer being offered?

A complete list of former jurisdiction-specific titles and their current National equivalents can be found here.


We're adjusting pricing January 1st

Effective January 1, 2018, pricing for most ICC Contractor and Certification exams will increase. Please refer to the specific exam you plan to take in the Exam Catalog for details.


Changes to ICC special inspector exams coming in December

Starting December 1, 2017, a majority of ICC's two-part special inspector exams will be split into three separate exam modules: general requirements, codes and plan reading. As an exception, the spray-applied fireproofing special inspector will be split into two exam modules (general requirements and codes & plan reading) and will have a slightly different breakdown than the other exams.

To achieve a special inspector certification, you will need to pass each module along with any other prerequisites for specific special inspector certifications. If you plan to pursue a reinforced concrete, prestressed concrete or structural welding special inspector certification, you are still held to the additional prerequisites in order to achieve those certifications.
