This is a responsible position with emphasis on technical expertise, critical thinking and independent judgment and decision-making. The Construction Inspector II classification is distinguished from the Construction Inspector I by the ability to perform the full range of duties assigned, with only occasional instruction or assistance as unusual or unique situations arise, and by possession of higher-level certifications.
