Wellington Official Earns Highest Level Of Code Profession Certification

Wellington’s Melvin Corredor recently earned the International Code Council’s Master Code Professional (MCP) designation, the highest level of Code Council certification and the “gold standard” for demonstrating proficiency in the code profession.

Corredor joins the elite group of Master Code Professionals worldwide whose achievements continue to benefit both the code enforcement profession, as well as their communities.

To earn the MCP designation, a candidate must first pass 10 core International Code Council exams plus a number of elective Code Council exams. Typical Master Code Professionals hold 17 or more of these certifications. The Master Code Professional designation requires certified individuals to complete an additional 60 hours of continuing education units every three years to maintain active status.

Throughout its history, the Code Council has certified many thousands of individuals, but only a small select number have attained this high level of achievement, just over 800 individuals.

Corredor’s achievement helps Wellington advance its mission of ensuring quality development while protecting the health, safety and welfare of all and providing accurate, fair, efficient, expeditious and professional building code enforcement to village residents.

“The Master Code Professional certification is the pinnacle of all ICC certifications, representing a level of effort, knowledge and dedication that elevates not only the individual achieving it, but the code official profession as a whole,” Code Council Chief Executive Officer Dominic Sims said.
