Military Families Building Career Path Banner
The International Code Council’s Military Families Career Path Program helps veterans who are transitioning to civilian life and their family members learn more about building safety career options. We are grateful for the sacrifices the service members and their families have made to keep us safe and are committed to ensuring their success after service.

Over the next 15 years, the building industry will experience a loss of 80 percent of the existing skilled workforce. This is a tremendous opportunity for military family members and veterans looking to enter the civilian workforce.

Code official positions fall into three main categories: plans examiners, inspectors and administrators. Each of these three areas encompass a number of different job titles and descriptions. The ICC Learning Center offers a variety of trainings for those new to the field as well as continuing education for experienced code officials. Visit for details.
