Ohio Home Inspector License FAQs

Who is PDH Academy?

Like ICA, PDH Academy is a leading provider of education for professionals looking to grow or start their careers. While ICA focuses on home inspection education, PDH specializes on providing education to home inspection, real estate, healthcare, and skilled trade professionals. PDH has been trusted by professionals nationwide since 2013.

PDH’s mission is to provide its students with affordable, hassle-free, industry-leading training. PDH is focused on offering comprehensive, up-to-date material, and guarantees their courses are approved by the necessary regulatory agencies. This gives PDH students the peace of mind that all education requirements for their professional license have been met.

Why Is ICA Partnering with PDH Academy for Ohio Home Inspector Training?

To offer training courses for home inspectors in Ohio, the course provider must be an approved proprietary school. Unfortunately, ICA is not an approved proprietary school in Ohio… yet. The good news though is that PDH Academy is already approved! While ICA goes through the school approval process, we have partnered with PDH to offer our industry-leading home inspection training courses – just under PDH’s school approval instead.

Navigating state regulations and school approvals can be a complex and time-consuming process. But fortunately, you don’t have wait for ICA to be approved to get started in your new career! PDH and ICA are two schools, but they’re working as one to guarantee you receive the industry-leading training and support that ICA is known for. Visit PDH Academy to get started today!

Is PDH Academy’s Home Inspection Training Different from ICA’s Program?

PDH and ICA share the same parent company, PDH Learning Inc. This means that the two companies can share resources, including their online learning system, home inspection instructors, student advisory staff, customer service team, and more.

While our Ohio home inspector training courses are technically approved under PDH Academy, our Ohio students receive the same high-quality training and support that sets ICA apart as the leader in home inspector training.

When you sign up for Ohio home inspector training courses through PDH Academy, you’ll receive all of the same great benefits that ICA students receive: lifetime access to the course, free report software, bonus training courses, award-winning instructors, mailed course completion certificates, unlimited support and more.
