Course Details
Our Well and Septic Inspection Course is an online training program we have developed to teach home inspectors the health, safety, and welfare issues surrounding Well and Septic Inspection as part of the home inspection process. Home inspectors who complete this course will learn how to perform well water testing, details surrounding well water testing procedures, and what to do if you detect the presence of bacteria or pollutants while performing your well water testing as part of a home inspection. The septic system inspection training is necessary to learn both the fundamentals and latest techniques used to spot problems. The septic tank inspection portion of the course is an excellent opportunity for both new and experienced inspectors to delve deeper into the intricacies of septic inspection.
