Home inspections are a vital part of the home buying process and will become increasingly essential as home buyers want to make informed decisions regarding their home purchase. As a non-degree pathway with a median annual wage of more than $77,000–significantly higher than the national median wage–a career in home inspection is highly valuable and in demand as the housing prices continue to grow. As careers in home inspection become increasingly more attractive to aspiring professionals who desire a fulfilling, sustainable and lucrative career– ICA provides students with all-inclusive education and training materials through live webinars and field training under the supervision of a licensed home inspector. ICA also provides board exam preparation courses to ensure students are successfully prepared to meet state requirements on the written exam.
In its ten-year history, ICA has graduated more than 20,000 home inspectors. ICA works closely with organizations such as the American Society of Home Inspectors to ensure that training aligns with industry standards. Students can continue their education through Edcetera Home Inspection, which offers programming designed to help current and aspiring home inspectors maintain their professional licensure and grow their skills over time. Additionally, students can join community forums to network with their peers and pursue recruitment and retention opportunities at businesses that community members already own or are looking to start.
