Demonstrate professionalism and commitment to quality
Get 100% of your technical staff certified by ICC
Why should my entire staff be 100% ICC certified?
Code Council certificate holders demonstrate a confirmed commitment to protect public health, safety and welfare. Raise the professionalism of your department and ensure all staff members are knowledgeable about the 2012 or 2009 I-Codes by encouraging your staff to get certified. Staff certifications also can assist in your department’s future accreditation efforts.

Titles may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, but some common job titles include:
- Permit Technicians

Target is committed to building strong, safe communities and promoting education. In 2010, Target announced plans to give $1 billion for education by the end of the 2015 fiscal year. Partnering with the International Code Council to promote code knowledge is an obvious blending of these two initiatives. In 2011, Target worked with more than 2,000 organizations across the country to provide funding, supplies and equipment, and training to keep communities safe. From public safety grants to disaster preparedness and response, Target is sponsoring education to build the best communities ever.
