Looking to earn your Washington home inspector license? Washington is one of just a few states that require classroom home inspection training and field inspection training to become a state licensed home inspector.
Steps to becoming a licensed Washington home inspector:
- The state requires 120 hours of classroom home inspection training and 40 hours of field inspection training to become a licensed home inspector. This is unfortunate because an online home inspection training course alone will not count toward those hours.
- After taking the ICA Real Estate Inspection Certification Program you can enroll in a Washington State approved classroom course to provide you with your required hours to obtain your home inspection license. The approved courses only cover residential home inspection, so by taking the ICA course first you will have the advantage of being familiar with commercial, radon, mold, and code inspection – topics that will not be covered in the state approved home inspection training programs.
- Washington also requires that home inspectors take and pass the National Home Inspectors Exam in order to become licensed. If you need help passing the National Home Inspectors Exam we suggest this exam prep app – https://homeinspectionform.com/exam-prep/
- Start your own business or go to work for an existing company!
It’s ICA’s mission to qualify aspiring home inspectors for careers they’re passionate about.

Anybody willing to take our Washington Home Inspector Course online can work towards a license when the timing is right. Convenient and affordable, the course can be completed on your schedule. When complete, you’ll have all you need to begin working in the field.
Advantages of Inspection Certification Associates
In order to become a successful home inspector, you’ll want to establish a strong foundation. Whether you’ve worked in construction in the past or are brand new to the field, ICA can bring you up to speed on the latest inspection techniques and Washington home inspection requirements. An ICA course complements the learning you’ll do in the classroom and in the field. We go far beyond the surface level learning you’ll experience in most home inspection courses, delving deep into the principles and procedures necessary in owning or operating your own successful home inspection business.
We even offer additional bonus courses on topics such as commercial inspections, mold inspections, building code, radon inspection and thermal imaging. Since ICA students earn lifetime access to our entire library of resources, you’ll never need to worry about falling out of practice. Informative, accessible teachers help bring the material to life, answering questions and helping each student meet the Washington home inspection requirements.
We also offer mold and radon certification courses. Through our partnership with ECAN, LLC, we offer a Mold Assessment Technician certification course, and a 16-Hour Radon Measurement Technician certification course. This course is also approved by the National Radon Proficiency Program (AARST-NRPP) or National Radon Safety Board (NRSB).
Included in ICA Training
In addition to our online class and bonus course material, ICA students have access to test prep tools. These will come in handy when studying for your National Home Inspectors exam. Practice tests are the ideal form of study for such a test, and our library of resources will equip you to feel prepared to earn your Washington home inspector license.
The benefits of ICA training don’t stop there. All successful home inspectors use report-writing software in the daily operations of their business. Thanks to ICA, you’ll be able to quickly and easily generate inspection reports with Report Form Nitro Inspection Report Software. This app is instrumental to the inspection process. Normally $399, Report Form Nitro is included in your course registration with ICA.
