Project Inspector Information

Find a Project Inspector

All school projects under the jurisdiction of DSA must have a Certified Project Inspector on site. A List of Certified Project Inspectors is available on the Tracker website.

Certified Project Inspector histories can be accessed through the Project Inspector Performance Review Box.


All inspectors for school projects under the jurisdiction of DSA must pass the DSA Project Inspector Examination to become certified. Certification is valid for four years. Approval by a DSA Regional Office must be obtained before a certified inspector is permitted to work on a project.

The revised and updated 2018 Project Inspector Examination Information and Application Package (PDF - 426 KB) (Revised 12/29/17) is now available.
