Please note: because inspectors have a subset of the responsibilities of the contract administrator, persons who have taken the CCA course will find this course provides a significant overlap of content.
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. Rather, it is a presentation on the administrative aspects of the inspector's job with the intent of clarifying what obligations, rights and responsibilities the inspector has, particularly with regard to the contractor.
The MMCD requires a contract administrator be in place throughout the course of a contract and the contract administrator may delegate some of his/her responsibilities to one or more inspectors. While an inspector may perform additional duties for the contract administrator, those are separate from the obligations imposed by the contract.
