Hello all,
I'm working now, but I'm not satisfied with my job because I don't get sufficient income. So i have decided to study business course on home inspection. But I will not to able to go for the course because I will not be able to leave my job. I am the only source of income for my family. I happened to hear about distance education on Home Inspection Training https://www.freedombusinessschool.com/scripts/distanceeducation.asp . I hope i'll have a good scope in this if I complete my training. What are your opinion on this??

Hello, Kathy, and welcome to the forum.

You are not alone. Very few home inspectors "grew up" in the business through a family connection. Most of us came from other industries, some related to home inspection and others quite a bit different.

You will want to first investigate any licensing requirements in your state that might exist.

I strongly suggest you do not enroll in any training program until you have thoroughly investigated as many alternatives as you can find. This will allow you to make a good comparison of programs, and find the right fit for yourself. Some training providers offer traditional programs with definite starting and ending points, often ending with a final exam. Others are a bit more organic, and allow you to determine the pace of your study.

I completed my own studies through my professional association, InterNACHI. It allowed me to tackle the required courses at my own pace. They offer several publications and a few introductory courses to non-members free-of-charge to help them determine if home inspection is for them.

Good luck in making your final decision.

Hello GMedich,
Thank you for your suggestion.. I really liked to become a home inspector but I was not able to do a course on it due to my financial situation. But now I strongly feel that I should achieve my aim. I don't prefer going for a work which I don't like and also my income is very low. I have to look after my career and my family. So this is my only hope. But anyway I'll discuss with my family and come to a final decision. Thank you again for spending your valuable time for me

GMedich: Great points,


What State are you located in? And what is your current employment? The reason I ask is because I was able to get my employer to pay for my required training. I was able to get a $1,300 training course for $0.
