Unlike other home inspection training schools, ICA goes well beyond the basics. Our all-inclusive program is the most thorough and effective home inspector instruction available anywhere. ICA students are trained to strict American Society of Home Inspector (ASHI) practice standards through online courses taught by instructors who are all professional home inspectors. Our 28 fully narrated streaming video class segments cover topics ranging from the basics of home inspection to starting and marketing a career as a certified home inspector.

What’s Included in ICA’s Online Home Inspection Training

Our training is all-inclusive. For a one-time low tuition payment of just $695, students enrolled in ICA’s online home inspection training also receive radon and mold instruction and certification free of charge. Our Real Estate Inspection Certification Program includes training ICA students to American Society for Testing and Materials’ (ASTM) standards. This additional instruction qualifies our graduates to conduct inspections of commercial as well as residential properties. Many of our competitors charge hundreds or even thousands of dollars for these and the other valuable extras that come with ICA training.

Your one-time $695 tuition payment also includes Report Form Pro 2 software that generates professional home inspection reports. It’s compatible with both iOS and Android devices, and works with desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets. If purchased separately, the reporting software would cost $400, but it’s free to ICA students. Since it can be used to conduct practice inspections during training, graduates will know how to use the software to create inspection reports by the time their home inspection instruction is completed.

Most home inspection training schools also charge their students for refresher training, but not ICA. Our graduates are given lifetime free access to our online refresher training materials. They’re also given free use of the ICA online library, which is perhaps the single largest collection of commercial and residential reference materials in the home inspection industry. All e-books and other materials in our library can be downloaded to your computer, so you’ll be able to refer to them even after you’ve completed the coursework and received your home inspector certification. ICA training materials are continually updated, which means you’ll always have access to information covering the latest home inspection industry standards, trends and techniques. Although it’s hard to believe, some of our competitors haven’t updated their training materials in more than five years.

What Makes ICA Different?

Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of Inspection Certification Associates is our approach to instruction. Unlike schools that teach home inspection in classrooms, ICA students complete training at their own pace. All instructional and reference materials are available online 24/7, so students can easily access them using laptops, tablets, smartphones or PCs any time and anywhere there’s Internet connection.

Because all ICA home inspection training is online, there’s no missing out on important class instruction due to illness, scheduling conflicts or other unforeseen events. Unlike classroom training, you won’t need to take time away from your current job while you study for a new career as a certified home inspector.
