Become an Instructor or Subject Matter Expert (SME)

Click the "Apply Now" button below and complete the Instructor/SME application. Please review the application questions carefully and complete them thoroughly as incomplete applications will not be considered. Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required. A staff member will reach out to you in less than 20 working days to confirm receipt of the application and ask any preliminary questions.

As the need arises, Code Council staff will contact applicants with the required skills and expertise to conduct a brief interview. Experience and availability will also be considered. All chosen applicants will then contract with the ICC Training to complete the project.

Submit a Presentation

We are now seeking training proposals focused on educational, technical, and practical topics spanning the entire spectrum of building safety, fire & life safety, administration, enforcement, and construction topics.

Submissions will be evaluated by ICC’s Education Committee (appointed by the Board of Directors) as well as key staff leaders from across the ICC Family of Solutions.

Submissions should include:

  • An overview and broad outline of the proposed topic
  • A list of objectives for the training (4 minimum)
  • A draft version of the curriculum and related presentation
  • A resume or summary of credentials for the intended presenter(s)
  • Expected length and preferred delivery method

It is important for our ability to assign Continuing Education Units (CEUs) that any proposed topic deliver educational value vs advertising a specific product or service (even if delivered by a product or service provider).  Most ICC presenters volunteer their time as an investment in the industry or in exchange for the broad industry exposure, so let us know if your circumstance would require remuneration to proceed.

When Disaster Strikes Institute

The Code Council’s WDS Institute trains and certifies qualified professionals to assist with performing Post-Disaster Building Safety Evaluations. The Institute is one of few recognized by FEMA and is identified within the NIMS Post-Disaster Building Safety Evaluator typing document as required training. By properly training qualified professional volunteers, a pool of individuals is created to assist municipalities and building officials throughout the country with post-disaster recovery efforts.

The Code Council’s WDS train-the-trainer session will introduce the material and prepare participants to deliver WDS training as a paid contract instructor to ICC.
