Building Officials must keep up-to-date with new and changing requirements, codes and standards, products, innovations, and processes in the construction industry. To effectively provide administrative and enforcement services for Authorities Having Jurisdiction, Building Officials typically participate in courses, conferences, and a variety of continuing professional development opportunities.

Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. Educational methods include storytelling, discussion, teaching, training, and directed research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, but learners may also educate themselves. Education can take place in formal or informal settings and any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational.

Mentorship is a relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. The mentor may be older or younger than the person being mentored, but he or she must have a certain area of expertise. It is a learning and development partnership between someone with vast experience and someone who wants to learn.
