Well right now the previous inspector is going up to be my manager so eventually it will be just me LOL.

Sounds good

Small departments are a good place to cut your teeth in and learn.
May I suggest if you have not read this book that you get a copy of it a read it and then re-read it every couple of years as you grow and gain experience lest we forget why and what an inspection is suppose to achieve.

For training, you can't beat the Colorado Chapter's Educational Institute, a days drive for you, but the bang for the buck is amazing, take your pick from 65 full day classes, in 13 paths, mix and match. Next year it will be in Loveland at the Embassy Suites. PM me if you want more info as it gets closer, always the first week in March.

that does sound like a lot of bang for the buck. I will have to seriously think about checking that out next year.

Rachel has been kicked to spammer haven. She listed herself from Delaware, had a Chinese time zone and the IP was coming from the Philippines.
Bye Rachel.
Poor Rachel. She was just here to sell us some wonderful diet pills.

Just trying to feed her family...now all they have to eat are diet pills.

Yes, I am using VPN service. It helps me open foreign websites.

You may want to find a more appropriate area of this website to post your questions in. You are talking more about a utility service than building codes. Start a new topic so more people see it. Your post is buried in this long one.
