No matter where you’re located, chances are good you’ll be called to inspect a swimming pool or spa at some point in your home inspector career. When they occur, you’ll be glad you went through swimming pool inspection training with Inspection Certification Associates. Our pool inspection course is a great way to ensure you’re prepared to inspect any kind of home. While swimming pools and spas may be more common in some areas of the country like California and Florida, there’s not a state in this country that doesn’t have them.
In most cases, swimming pools and spas go beyond the accepted standards of practice and defined scope of a home inspection. Clients who are buying a home that includes a swimming pool or spa would prefer (and in many cases expect) their home inspector to at least perform a cursory inspection on those home components. The swimming pool or spa may be an important motivating factor in the buyer’s decision to purchase that property, and the more important that pool is to the client, the more likely they will want information regarding the condition of the pool.
While you might think inspecting a pool is fairly straightforward, doing so without proper training can be risky. Pool and spa designs vary widely, and without a thorough education on the subject, you could overlook an important safety feature or defect. Thankfully, ICA’s pool inspection course offers you a thorough primer on industry standards, policies and best practices. No matter your background or experience level, our class prepares you for anything. Upon completion, you’ll be ready to inspect any pool or spa you come across.
