What do you need to become a Home Inspector?
To satisfy NY State requirements for a home inspector license you will need to complete a training course consisting of 100 hours of classroom instruction and 40 hours of field instruction. In the classroom we will complete a module per month which consists of 7 classes each month totaling 100 hours. Module 5 or the field based training will be on Saturday mornings at a separate location convenient to all participants. These 10 mock inspections will satisfy your 40 hours of field based training.

On Site Field Training
On Saturday mornings the class will meet at a home to satisfy the 40 hours of home inspection field based training. Here we will practice the skills learned in class through a mock inspection process. With guidance from the head instructor, by the tenth mock inspection you will have inspected and reported on actual homes and will be prepared to begin your business. These mock inspections are very valuable and you will be guided through them by a highly qualified and experienced inspector with a determination to help you succeed.
What background and skills do I need to start?
Many people getting into this field have a genuine interest in home repair, architecture, or construction - however, none of these things are necessary! Good people skills, work ethic, and the ability to use a simple computer program are all you really need. In class and on site you will be taught the skills necessary to inspect homes and start your own business - we even provide you with a basic set of starter tools!
