Our Home Inspection Fundamentals curriculum was written by our instructors. Our instructors have completed several thousand actual inspections. This experience gives our students insight into the real-world situations they come across every day. The best way to learn about many of the topics we teach is to look at real examples. Our students get to actually touch and inspect a real structure, not just read about it in a book. Our classes give you lecture and hands-on training in our newly remodeled state of the art classroom facility. It is a classic mixed-use structure nearly 100 years old. We believe in the “touch what you teach” method of education. This allows show hands on many kinds of building products and techniques that have been commonplace over the years. Our small class size gives us more time to answer individual questions and help prepare students to take the Washington State Home Inspection Exam. It is our goal see our students excel in the Home Inspection profession, beyond simply passing the state exam. To aid our students’ success, we love to share tips on search engine optimization, social media impact, marketing tips, reporting and scheduling systems, as well as client management systems; beyond the fundamentals!
