If you’re on the fence about whether or not to enroll with ICA School, part of your quandary probably deals with value. Is this program all that it’s cracked up to be, and will the investment be worth it?
You control your success after graduation. Your training is in good hands with ICA School. But you don’t have to take our word for it. Many satisfied students, past and present, have a lot to say about the ICA School home inspecting program experience.
Will ICA School Cover My Educational Needs?
Some students might wonder whether ICA School is geared toward one part of the country, or if the program only covers the basics. That’s a reasonable concern. You wouldn’t want to invest in a program that left important educational gaps that you’d have to learn either on the job or with supplemental education.
Here’s what one student explained about his experience:
With your school being located in the Midwest and I’m in Southern California I was afraid your course wouldn’t cover the type of construction we have out here. Even after talking to you guys and being reassured that it would, I was still a little unsure. You guys did exactly what you said you were going to and for that I thank you . . . sometimes you never know, but I’m more than happy! – Aaron from North Hollywood, CA
Why is This Program Less Expensive Than Others?
Compare online home inspecting programs, and you’ll find that ICA School is often the least expensive. But a lower cost doesn’t always equal cheap quality. Director of Education, Steve Preins, explains that by offering this program so affordably, more students are able to take advantage of it. More than a few prospective students have wondered the same thing, and have been pleasantly surprised after enrolling.
A construction veteran thought the program would be a cheap and easy way to get his credits. But he learned that there was a lot more to the program than he expected:
After being in construction for the last 30 years I was gonna just start my inspection business without any training but in Virginia we need to take a class for 70 hours to be approved by the state. This class was the cheapest I found so I figured I’d just cruise through it and I wouldn’t learn much since I’ve been doing this for so long. The course ended up being awesome and I learned a lot, especially when it came to marketing. – Stan from Arlington, VA
If the Course is Online, Who is There to Help?
Another big concern about online home inspection training is being lost with questions and having nowhere to turn. But this isn’t an isolated experience, even though you work at your own pace and on your own time. ICA School guarantees that you’ll never be left alone without the help that you need. You have access to an instructor at any time. But of course, inspectors do sleep once in a while. There might occasionally be a slight delay in response.
Two former students weigh in on that topic:
I give the course a 9 out of 10. The only reason I didn’t give it a 10 is because I work second shift and there were a couple times I would be working on it at like 2 am and I would have a question but couldn’t get it answered til the next morning. Jesse from San Jose, CA
I called the other day when I was on an inspection and Steve helped me out personally with a wood stove question I had. I just wanted to thank him for being there. – Sarah from Falls Church, VA
