Number of Master Code Professionals continues to grow
The International Code Council’s Master Code Professional (MCP) designation is the highest level of Code Council certification and is the “gold standard” for demonstrating proficiency in the code profession. Currently, there are more than 900 MCP professionals worldwide, and their achievements are a benefit to the code enforcement profession, as well as their communities. By becoming a Master Code Professional, the highest level of certification in the Code Council’s program, you can increase earnings and advance your career. The Code Council has certified thousands of individuals, but only a select number have attained this high level of achievement.
Last year, 38 select code professionals achieved the prestigious Master Code Professional designation, including the following nine individuals from the fourth quarter of 2020:

“The Master Code Professional certification is the pinnacle of all Code Council certifications, representing a level of effort, knowledge and dedication that elevates not only the individual achieving it but the code official profession as a whole,” said Code Council Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims, CBO.

Typical Master Code Professionals hold 17 or more Code Council certifications.
