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.

Thanks For Extension, I Passed.

Good morning, I just wanted to say thank you for gracing me with an extension on my course. I have been very busy with a lot of stuff. I am happy to let you know that I took and passed structural masonry codes and plans, and am now credentialed. Thank you again.

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.

Passed the Codes!

On April 30 2024, I passed the 84C Structural Masonry Codes test. It took me a lot of effort and dedication to study to get here. Definitely, SI Certs course helps a lot. It has a lot of information to memorize, it is also very easy to follow and practical. The Code Practice Test is phenomenal. It's like the real test. It helps to practice what you already read and studied on each module. If any person wants to become a Special Inspector, this is the place to begin: SI Certs.

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.

Passed on the first attempt

Your courses have been very helpful and worthwhile. I've used them to prepare for the ICC concrete, masonry, and soils tests, all of which I've passed on the first attempt.

Masonry is Done

Just passed my structural masonry test through icc. Your study guide made the test easy and a breeze. The study guide was harder than the test. Thanks for the this awesome resource you guys provide.

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.

Chief Technical Advisor for Special Inspection

"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."
