Yes, all of our listed classes have an online option.  You can even attend some sessions online and some sessions in person.

Do you offer mentorship after I finish the class and have my license?

Absolutely.  All of our students get mentorship for life.  In addition to being able to attend any future classes in whole or in part we are available to answer any questions you may have when starting your new career as a Home Inspector.

Is it a good time to start a career as a Home Inspector?

YES!!! We think this is the ideal time to start your career as a Home Inspector.  As the Real Estate Market switches from a Sellers market to a Buyers market you can be going through the Home Inspector School, passing the state Home Inspector Test, and getting your business set up.  All of these things take time, but you'll be ready when the market switches to a Buyers market, which is when the Home Inspection industry flourishes. 

How is the Field Training Completed?

After enrollment and payment of the deposit for the home inspector school we will contact you and let you know what inspections we have scheduled.  If the inspections fit into your schedule then you and our instructor will attend the inspection with our inspector.  On our field training you typically get 1-on-1 training with the instructor while at the property.  

What tools will I need as a New Home Inspector?

One of the great things about become a Home Inspector is the relatively low start up costs.  A basic tool set up is something we go over with our students that enroll in our school, but we've also provided this blog that covers some of the basic tools and this page of additional info and links to each of the tools we purchase for our inspectors.
