Permit Technician Career Advancement Academy
Launching again in Fall 2024!


Fostering a culture of leadership and professional development should be a top priority for every building department.

Such opportunities are especially important for counter technicians, as they play a critical role as liaisons between the public and building safety services, supporting various staff members and acting as the central hub of department operations.

The Permit Technician Career Advancement Academy will be held for its second year during the 2024 Education Week in Burlingame, California designed for its participants to acquire essential insights for their roles at the counter, exploring effective methods to apply their skills in aiding customers and assisting their colleagues.

Academy key topics covered are essential as counter technicians advance in their departments, including plan reviewing for permit issuance, code enforcement, zoning considerations, new computer systems, GIS, and strategies to enhance customer engagement.

The curriculum is also crafted to push participants to evaluate their professional journey, addressing long and short-term goals. The academy is intended for active engagement, encouraging shared discussions and coursework to facilitate collaborative learning among instructors and attendees, building networks for ongoing support.

For those who wish to go beyond the drive to pass an examination or maintain certification, consider joining the waitlist to receive the registration packet later this month.
