    That's why young new individuals should be brought in under supervision of the experienced. That is what apprenticeship is about. They gain some experienced under the supervisor/mentor. The role of mentorship and supervision must be intertwined in the process.

    In what state? Please reference where in the state statutes it licenses building inspectors.

    ICC certification is not a license.

    I just set in a class last week for 4 days and out of 18 people 4 were taking the electrical exam but only 3 were going to use it as an inspector. What I thought was very interesting was about half the class was retired police officers doing property maintenance and taking the course to understand the basics. I took a look at the ages of the class and other than a handful most were retired or going to be within the next 10 years.
