Principles of Home Inspection: Systems & Standards Online Course
Learn the skills of today's home inspectors with this new interactive online home inspection course. From foundations to attics, this course fully explains each major system and component. It digs deeply into every component problem while fully explaining the implications and inspection strategies needed to discover each of these building defects. This course is unique because it takes two methods of learning—hands-on and live—and combines it with an enhanced curriculum, 11 hours of video instruction, and hundreds of pictures and technical illustrations. Throughout the entire course, there are interactive exercises, progress quiz questions, comprehensive exams, and report writing software instruction to build your confidence. This new hybrid training system, a first in the marketplace, keeps you fully engaged from start to finish. This is simply the most comprehensive online home inspection course on the market.

Each topic or unit is separated and dedicated to a particular system, and the subject matter is defined by its title. It then breaks down each component of that system, clearly delineating the issues and concerns.

Topics Include:

  • Standards of Practice
  • Business & Marketing
  • Exteriors
  • Roofing
  • Structure
  • Insulation & Ventilation
  • Interiors
  • Electrical Systems
  • Gas Furnaces
  • Oil Furnaces
  • Hot Water Boilers
  • Other Heating Systems
  • Air Conditioning & Heat Pumps
  • Plumbing

Each unit has the learning objectives clearly laid out and explains exactly what you should know upon completion of that topic. Topics include numerous pictures and illustrations describing the principles being discussed. Throughout each unit, you’ll find videos with classroom instruction and technical inspection methods. Classroom videos include an instructor with PowerPoint slides and an electronic blackboard. The technical videos take place in the field and display “how to inspect” each component.

Home Inspection Training: 2-Day On-Site Inspection
Two days of indispensable hands-on learning via actual in-home inspections complete and solidify every aspect of your online learning. Our experienced instructors show you what to do, how to do it, and how it should be professionally reported. A trial subscription for the premier Horizon software allows you to fully complete each inspection and send the report to the instructor for review.

The first inspection lays out the format for performing a complete home inspection. The instructor walks you through the entire process. The inspection is broken down into small sections in which you inspect each section of the house, discuss key factors, issues, and learn how to report accurately and appropriately. The instructor describes what you should have seen and how you should report it. During the second inspection, you inspect the entire house, with the instructor supervising each step of the process. Upon completion, the instructor reviews and comments on your work. Each inspection concludes with you completing a home inspection report on Horizon software. This complete “in the field” instruction provides you with the hands-on knowledge and confidence you need to start a successful career.
