For every inspection, there will be a report sent out after the inspection, which indicates that your electrical work is passed by an inspector and if it is not passed they will provide you with corrections to be made and after you do corrections and modifications you can call them back for re-inspections.

A very important point to consider on your second inspection is that it is free and included on your original fee paid for your electrical permits. but if your electrical work is not passed on the second inspection for any further electrical inspections you will need to pay a fee for re-inspection. for more information on electrical inspection process you can check this link and again, having qualified electrician and electrical contractor is very important.
