Upgrade a Code Enforcement Officer in Training Registration to Code Enforcement Officer Registration
On this page:
A registered code enforcement officer in training who has obtained the experience necessary to qualify as a code enforcement officer may file an application to upgrade a registration to that of code enforcement officer.
Applicants seeking to upgrade a code enforcement officer registration must provide verification of having obtained at least one year of full-time experience in the field of code enforcement and provide documentation on a CEO003 Code Enforcement Officer Experience Verification Form (PDF).
The experience verification form is already included with the registration application form.
Application and Fee
Applicants must submit a completed registration application (Apply Online or see Code Enforcement Officer in Training Upgrade Registration PDF) along with the $25 application fee.
A registration as a code enforcement officer is valid for a period of two years.
A code enforcement officer in training who applies to upgrade a registration is not required to submit continuing education hours for the upgrade.
Applicants with Criminal Convictions
As part of the registration process, all applicants must successfully pass a criminal history background check.
Please see the Guidelines for License Applicants with Criminal Convictions, which describe the process by which TDLR determines whether a criminal conviction renders an applicant an unsuitable candidate for registration, or whether a conviction warrants revocation or suspension of a registration previously granted.
