Public Works Inspection Course

This course is targeted at experienced inspectors, so it does not cover the "mechanics" of the inspection role, such as reading drawings, taking samples or doing tests. This course is a presentation on the administrative aspects of the inspector's job with the intent of clarifying the inspectors obligations, rights and responsibilities on an MMCD contract.
