New online course prepares students to be home inspectors

December 19, 2016

Actual scenarios via photo and video bring home inspection issues to life

BROOKFIELD, Wis. — A fully updated online course by OnCourse Learning’s American Home Inspectors Training provides students who want to be home inspectors with everything needed to pass their licensure exam and start a business.

The “Professional Home Inspection Online Course,” which is available today, covers all important aspects of a residential home, including electrical, plumbing, roofing, heating and cooling, exteriors, interiors, insulation and ventilation, fireplaces and wood-burning appliances.

The course includes:

  • Practical inspection scenarios.
  • Proper inspection techniques.
  • Technical information to thoroughly perform a professional home inspection.
  • 1,200 photos showing actual home defects.
  • Live home inspection and educational videos.
  • Exam questions to help students prepare for the test.

“The visuals bring to life what home inspectors encounter out in the field,” said AHIT Technical Trainer Steven R. O’Donnell, who helped update the course. “Looking at something and having no idea what’s wrong with it is one of the most difficult things for the average inspector at the beginning of his or her career.”

Updated guide

To prepare home inspectors to better identify issues while doing real home inspections, AHIT’s online course corresponds with the updated AHIT course textbook, “Practical Guide to Home Inspection,” which also launched today.

AHIT experts continue to support students via email and a special helpline between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. CT even after they’ve completed the course and have become home inspectors.

Take the next steps to get your home inspection career started.
