A home’s septic system is among its most vital components. When functioning as intended, a septic system goes largely unnoticed. When repairs are needed, though, a septic system becomes impossible to ignore. For home inspectors, septic system inspection training is necessary to learn both the fundamentals and latest techniques used to spot problems. Inspection Certification Associates’ septic tank inspection training course is an excellent opportunity for both new and experienced inspectors to delve deeper into the intricacies of septic inspection.
A septic tank inspection course can give you the insight you need to perform your duties at the highest level possible. Because word-of-mouth referrals are the bread and butter of so many home inspection businesses, your reputation for thorough inspections will no doubt attract more clients. Making homeowners aware of their property’s overall condition is important, but identifying specific septic tank problems can be especially helpful.
Expert home inspectors know how risky it is to perform a visual inspection of a septic tank. Skipping over the septic system altogether is even riskier. No matter the age of a home, it’s worth conducting a full inspection of the septic tank.
What’s Included in Our Septic System Inspection Training
Designed for both novice and experienced inspectors alike, ICA’s septic tank inspection course covers the two main types of onsite wastewater or septic treatment systems. After completing the class, you’ll be ready to perform both maintenance and functional inspections of client septic systems.

Education on Your Schedule
Our septic system inspection training covers industry-regarded best practices for both visual and full tests. While visual inspections are more common, full tests are often necessary for a complete picture of a home’s septic tank. Septic tank inspection training will help you identify common problems, including leaks, overflows and corrosion. Because septic systems only have an average life expectancy of about 25 years, inspectors find problems more often than you might expect.
