Continuing Education for Renewal:
Commissioned Inspectors

Which course should I take to renew my credential?

The 2017 Edition of RCI-1, NB-263, Rules for Commissioned Inspectors (RCI-1) requires each Inspector must complete ONE online training course each calendar year for each commission and/or endorsement held, as shown below.

IS Commission and O Endorsement = ONE online training course
AI Commission and B Endorsement = ONE online training course
R Endorsement = ONE online training course
N and NS Endorsements = ONE online training course
I and NSI Endorsements = ONE online training course
C and NSC Endorsements = ONE online course


How do I know which course I should take?

Each course in the online training catalog is tagged with a line indicating if it may be taken for renewal.

For example:


Are there other parameters I need to know when selecting a course to take?

Yes. For renewal purposes you may not take the same online training course two years in a row.

For example:

Inspector Joe took the course Inspection Techniques for Firetube Boilers in 2017 to renew his IS Commission.

Inspector Joe may not take Inspection Techniques for Firetube Boilers for renewal in 2018.

HOWEVER, Inspector Joe may retake this course again in 2019 or later for renewal provided a new version of the course is available for enrollment.
