OVERVIEW

The Center for Government Services at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, in cooperation with New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, offers a 60-hour course to become a licensed Inspector of Hotels and Multiple Dwellings, and a 60-hour course to become a Housing Code Official.

In December 2001, the regulations for the Maintenance of Hotels and Multiple Dwellings were modified to grant local inspectors the right to enforce those regulations in their own jurisdiction. Licensed inspectors have the privilege of upholding the standards of health and safety for those who occupy hotels and multiple dwellings in New Jersey.

 

Course Descriptions

Inspector of Hotels & Multiple Dwellings - 60 Hours. The Regulations for Maintenance of Hotels and Multiple Dwellings require that the inspectors and officials who enforce the hotel and multiple dwelling regulations within their jurisdictions obtain a license. The Rutgers University Center for Government Services, in cooperation with the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, offers training courses for these professionals. Inspectors of Hotels & Multiple Dwellings are authorized to carry out field inspections of hotels and multiple dwellings within an enforcing agency such as a municipality or for the state of New Jersey under the supervision of a licensed Housing Code Official. This course discusses the duties required by inspectors of hotels and multiple dwellings and prepares students to take the national certification exam necessary to become licensed inspectors. Students should take this course if they wish to obtain an Inspector of Hotels & Multiple Dwellings license, if they require a better understanding of the regulations, codes, and law, or if they have received a license under the special provisions of the licensing rules but still need additional guidance. This 60-hour course includes 54-hours of classroom instruction plus a mandatory two-day field inspection that could take place in the southern or northern part of New Jersey. Please see the schedule above for dates and time of field inspection. Students MUST make the necessary arrangements to attend on the scheduled dates and times. Course instructors will provide the location of each field inspections as soon as the information is available. 

Housing Code Official - 60 Hours. Housing Code Officials are authorized to act as the first line supervisor in an enforcing agency and are responsible for the administration and enforcement of the New Jersey Hotel & Multiple Dwelling law and regulations.

This course is open to holders of a valid Inspector of Hotels and Multiple Dwellings license. Course topics include a review of the hotel and multiple dwelling law, administration and enforcement, fundamentals of communication, managing inspections and investigations, and testifying at a trial.
