    The Administrative Hearing Officer program provides training for both codes officials and those seeking to become administrative hearing officers.

The law also allows a city, through its administrative hearing officer, to levy fines for such violations in excess of $50. Successful completion of this training authorizes certain participants to serve as municipal administrative hearing officers.
