Working at their own pace, our students complete convenient online training from their phones, laptops, or desktop computers. Since all our training and reference materials are accessible 24/7, students can complete their training on their own terms. Most people complete the 120-hour course in a matter of a few weeks, though some finish in as few as ten days.

28 home inspector training videos are narrated by certified and highly experienced home inspection professionals. They’ve seen and done it all and are ready to hand off their knowledge to the next generation of home inspectors.
