    In my state, WV the provisional is 2 years. Check your state and see who controls that.( Fire Marshall, State Board, etc. ) Can't hurt to double check.
    Best of luck. @ 6 months you're gonna need it brother

    Greetings gentlemen. I am new here and just passed my legal module for the CBO. I am starting to study for the management test. I'm looking for practice tests, study guides or anything else that would aid in passing. For anyone that has not passed the Legal module. Let me know and I can pass on what I have that would help.

    Thanks

    New to the site and I am searching for help from others that have endured the new CBO exam nightmare. I am just now starting to study for the management portion of the exam and I cannot find anything that would give me an idea of what types of questions they are asking. Is there any of you guy/gals that have taken the test and could possibly show me what direction I need to go in. I do in return have some notes on the legal portion that I would be more than willing to share in return.

    Thanks in advance.

    Archer, did you take your MM exam yet? I passed mine and can offer some study suggestions. I'm scheduled to take the Legal exam next month.

    No, Not yet. I'm studying for it now. I can do the same with the legal exam for you.

    Here are some of the main areas that were covered. Most of the questions actually referenced the book that the question was for.
    Budgeting: Go through the budget types and budget cycles. Get to know all the fund types and what they are used for as well. Know the equity types, finance dept duties and financial reports.
    HR: Go through hiring process, performance evaluations and HR software systems and their uses.
    Management: Go through supervisor/building officials roles, supervisor expectations from employees and evaluating employees
    Inspector skills: Inspectors main role as an educator, customer service regarding listening and complaints, communication.
    Only a few questions on IBC and IFC regarding who gets notice for violations and posting notices.
    If anything else pops in my mind, ill add to it but this covers a majority of the topics. I hope this helps!
