IMPROVING THE CODE ENFORCEMENT INSPECTORS CREDIBILITY **New**

Special: Send 4 participants and get the 5th free

Date: Dec. 3            Time: 8:30am - 12:30pm

                                    Fee: $75.00             Location: Town of Davie

                                    4 hours/.4CEUs        Instructor: Steve Uman

Code Enforcement Inspectors too often do not get treated with the respect they deserve. "Who are you to tell me that my lawn needs to be mowed?" "So what if I haven't repaired my fence. What are you gonna do about it?" This class focuses on enhancing the attitude and performance of the inspector. By becoming more aware of whom we are and of our individual strengths and weaknesses, we may become more understood and appreciated, be able to command some respect, and thusly improve our personal self-esteem.

The class delves into three areas:

• Personal Interaction touches on customer service, verbal communication, integrity, objectivity, trust, dependability, and procedures.
• Professional Presentation touches on oral and written skills, decision-making, community involvement, and educating the public.
• Technical Competence covers under- standing the relevant codes, work
planning, setting priorities, and the way time gets inadvertently wasted.
