NFPA offers several programs for fire inspector and plans examiner.

The plans examiner certification has an indirect relationship to low voltage (fire alarms).

Fortunately or unfortunately (depending on your perspective), I am not aware of an exclusively "low-voltage inspector" certification here in the US. Not only is there really not a demand for a low voltage inspector, it also wouldn't be very practical for most enforcement jurisdictions.

However, limited energy and low voltage systems are covered under the standard electrical inspector programs and usually under the scope of a standard electrical inspectors duties.

I didn't mean is there a inspector process for low voltage, it was more inline with what you stated... it's covered under electrical.

Thanks Bryan
