    Default Hello from Manitoba, Canada

    Hello!

    I am just starting the journey into home inspections and I'm at currently at 'square one'.

    I'm new to the industry of home inspections but have over six years experience as a risk control consultant and I perform inspections at commercial and industrial facilities for insurance purposes, so I believe I've had exposure to a number of the skills that are crucial for a home inspector.

    I realize; however, that the principles that apply to industrial facilities are very different from residential dwellings so I will be taking some training courses prior to inspecting any homes, with the intent to eventually become a Certified Home Inspector (through CAHPI).

    Does anyone have any feedback as to a good 'home study' or online program (I work full time and cannot take day classes - and even night classes would be difficult to fit into my schedule).

    I'm looking at potentially taking AHIT's $1,000 home study/on-line course. . . what else might be out there????

    I'd appreciate any suggestions or feedback!

    Cheers!

    Ian

    Thank you,

    I see it will be important for me to pick a program offered by one of the companies recognized by CHAPI . . and the AHIT program is one of them. Hopefully the online course is recognized.

    Has anyoune else had experience with CHAPI and the on-line courdes offered by their Accredited Training Providers (www.nca-anc.com - Accredited Training Providers)???

    Thanks again!
