User Reviews

Just passed my masonry plan test.

Hi Gabe, just passed my masonry plan test so I'm all set for my ICC masonry inspection.

The training really covers ICC inspection not just to pass the test but also covers materials to be a good inspector, so I believe more and more industry professionals will acknowledge SI Certs to be some sort of benchmarking for hiring a good and qualified ICC inspector on top of getting the ICC certification.

Your courses are awesome.

Hello, I now passed the masonry exams last week and I'm going to purchase the pre-stressed course this weekend. Thanks. Your courses are awesome. I'm washing through the ICC exams like nothing.

I owe a thanks to these trainings.

Hey I just want to let you know that I passed the ICC structural masonry exam and I owe a thanks to these trainings.

I actually found your study exams more difficult than the ICC exam, which made it significantly easier.

CAREER TIP:

Structural masonry is widely used on projects and requires no prior construction experience or other certifications to become Masonry Special Inspection certified. Masonry is often a “break-in” certification, where one can use to break into the inspection field.

"Masonry was my first certification and I used it to break into the industry. This one helped propel my career into what it has become today.

I developed this course to teach all of the important technical components behind this certification. This course teaches from the various required code books and will focus your efforts where they need to be to pass the Codes portion of the test.

For me, I learned certain elements about masonry plan reading that gave me the edge to passing the plans on the test. I’ll show you this and more with our Masonry Training Plan Set and plans practice test. If you need help, I’m just one click away."
