Course Outline
Inspection is observation of construction for conformance with the approved design documents.  This course will enable individuals, who are in the inspection and testing field or want to become a special inspector, to understand the nature and the importance of this business.

This course will help you to know and understand the types of inspection and testing involved in a construction project, which for the most part are mandatory to assure the quality of materials used as well as the workmanship.  Further, this course will provide guidance and recommendations for design and inspection consideration in an effort to provide a long-lasting exterior building envelope system.

Objective
  • To familiarize participants with testing and inspection techniques of engineering materials and workmanship in building construction.

Who Should Attend: Architects, engineers, practicing building construction inspectors, project engineers, NDE lab personnel, and technicians and technologists involved with building construction. This course will also benefit contractors and building owners, who wish to become more effective by better understanding the requirements for inspections as well as the role and responsibilities of construction inspectors.

Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
