The NRCIA is the leading organization in the industry, offering the only CA SB 721 compliance training and certification program. This program is designed for professionals who wish to broaden their inspection services to include Exterior Elevated Elements (EEE). In 2018, the California Legislature passed a bill mandating regular inspections of wood materials used in balconies, decks, walkways, staircases, etc., in multifamily residential units with 3 or more units. The purpose of these inspections is to ensure the safety of both residents and the general public. There is a high demand for inspectors, but not enough professionals in the field. The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.
