Led by Director of Education Steve Preins (click here for full bio), Inspection Certification Associates (ICA) is North America’s most trusted provider of online Home Inspection Training and Certification.

Mr. Preins is a former longtime member of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) board of directors and a former President of the National Association of Home Inspectors (NAHI) at the Illinois state level.  You can see him facilitate training sessions nearly every year at the NAHI and ASHI national conferences, where he educates existing home inspectors on the most innovative inspection techniques and strategies in the industry.  Steve has been successfully training new and existing home inspectors for over 20 years.

ICA exists for one reason, and one reason only, to help YOU enter the home inspection industry with your best foot forward through our online home inspection training course.  We will provide you with the real estate, commercial property and home inspection training, support, and mentorship you need to begin the next phase of your career.

Our online home inspection training course is fully up to date for 2016 and can be completed at your own pace and it includes a home inspection report template so you can get out and start performing home inspections right after you complete our online home inspection training course.  Your home inspection certification will be mailed upon completion.  See our home inspection state licensing pages for details about any home inspection licensing requirements in your state.

After completing the ICA home inspection training course online you will be able to do any of the following:

  • Start your own successful home inspector business
  • Perform ancillary services such as mold inspections, radon testing, healthy housing inspections, commercial property and building inspections, and HUD inspections
  • Apply for work with your local municipality as a new construction or building code inspector

There are other training schools in the inspection industry that can provide you the knowledge needed to perform a home inspection, but they will only provide training in mold, radon, commercial property inspections, and building codes for an additional fee.  Only ICA will provide you with a full training portfolio.  Our Real Estate Inspection Certification Program covers all of these topics and more, with the most affordable tuition in the industry.

That’s why our motto is…
“Best Training, Best Service, and Best Value.”
