What a PRONTO@work site has to share
The City of San Antonio’s Development Services Department (DSD) is one of the first in the nation to implement PRONTO@work as an additional option for achieving certification. DSD moved quickly to test this new examination method with much success.
“The availability of PRONTO fits with one of our City’s core values – innovation. With this technology, we anticipate more staff will be able to take their certification exams,” said DSD Director Michael Shannon, PE, CBO. “As a department, we strongly encourage our employees to obtain ICC certifications in various areas to make our building and code enforcement team better equipped to handle the construction, inspection and maintenance of code-compliant structures.”
Jenny Ramirez, Code Enforcement Manager, points out, “I did not have to worry about scheduling around the test center calendar; it was at my convenience.  The steps for logging in were simple and direct. I plan to take the rest of my ICC exams through PRONTO.”
Florence Diaz, Plans Examiner Supervisor, said, “My experience with PRONTO@work has been a positive one. Scheduling the room is quick and easy, and the location is very convenient. Personally, having a room to myself to perform the test is more relaxing than attending a testing site.”
