BOAF’s Cross Training Programs for Inspectors and Plans Examiners is an alternative eligibility path to certification in an additional category for participants that qualify per. This comprehensive program is designed with a foundation of building code courses and on-the-job training for new hires or individuals seeking licensure in additional categories to replace the state’s 5-year experience requirement. 

To participate in the Cross Training Program, an individual must be licensed through F.S. 468 or certified through F.S. 633.  Anyone licensed through F.S. 633 must provide 3 years of verifiable full time work experience in inspection or plans review and must have a pre-approved trainer that is licensed and endorsed in the category of the program the applicant is seeking.  A licensed Fire Inspector must provide the same documentation in addition to a copy of their Firesafety Certificate.

A trainer must complete a Trainer Information Form and submit a copy of their licensee details to include endorsements as listed on DBPR. 

To apply for the Cross Training Program, you must complete the BOAF online Pre-Participation Application, upload your 3 year work experience affidavit, trainer information form (if you are licensed through F.S. 633), trainer license verification documents and pay the non-refundable pre-participation application fee of $250.00 which is due upon submission.

Once your application is received it will be reviewed and processed.  You will receive an email from BOAF when you have been approved.  You will be given an approval date and expiration date.  BOAF’s Cross Training Programs need to be completed within 36 months (3 years) from the date of approval. 

Each trade program is a total of 200 hours, includes BOAF coursework and on-the-job (OJT) training hours.  Several courses are available online and others are presented twice each year at the BOAF office in Sanford.  Students may work through the online coursework at their own speed.  To learn more about how BOAF online courses work, click here.  Coursework fees are additional to application fees.  Course registration fees start at $49 per hour for BOAF state members, with a discount for multi-hour courses.  Once completed, BOAF coursework is good for 3 years from the date of completion.  Several of the courses overlap the trade areas, for example, Ethics in Construction is a requirement in each of the four trade programs.  To view our upcoming Cross Training Schedule click here.
