Uniform Construction Code Program

The NJ State Uniform Construction Code requires candidates for licensure to complete specified educational programs. Licensing requirements are based on a combination of education, experience and tests. Regulations for the Uniform Construction Code (NJAC 5:23-5.1(d)) have been adopted by the NJ Department of Community Affairs (NJDCA) to ensure public safety, health and welfare insofar as they are affected by building construction. In order for the code to be enforced adequately and effectively, it has been determined that code officials need sufficient knowledge and competence to administer and interpret the code’s standards. This is best achieved through the creation of an education and training program and the development of licensing requirements. Instruction of all Uniform Construction Code Courses are taught by State-Certified Professionals in the field of Code Enforcement. Upon successful completion you may be eligible to receive a reimbursement after a favorable decision by the NJDCA.
