Report writing skills are essential to success in your code enforcement career. Your notices of violation, letters, and reports are public documents that may be read by supervisors, attorneys, judges, citizens, design professionals, contractors, and reporters.

Quality inspection reports and notices of violation help ensure code compliance, impress superiors, and win respect from colleagues. They facilitate repairs, reinforce requirements for safe operations, and ensure unsafe practices are discontinued.

  • Basic principles for organizing and writing reports
  • Bullet style
  • Punctuation
  • Capitalization
  • Sentence structure
  • English usage
  • And the specialized vocabulary you need for your reports

Sample reports are included, along with a pre-test, post-test, practice exercises, and complete answer key.
