Certified Home Inspection Training in Northeast Ohio

"We Build Futures...One Success Story at a Time"

Thank you for visiting the HomeSpection® Training Institute.  Obviously you are interested in becoming a Home & Commercial Property Inspector, and you've made a great choice!  In addition to this being rated as one of the top professions by Entrepreneur Magazine & Money Magazine (2001, 2014) you can also see what all of our students have to say on our "Testimonials"page.  Please take the time to read our whole website and each of the six tabs above; "About Us", "FAQs", "Services", "What we Inspect", "School Enrollment" and "Testimonials".  Students choose to attend HomeSpection due to our total hands-on training, both in the classroom and out in the field inspecting real homes.  We are the only school that offers a completely hands-on training course, while other schools only offer online classes or a combination of online and classroom.  Home Inspection is a profession that is simply impossible to learn completely online.  You certainly wouldn't trust an Electrician to wire your house if they've only ever read a book about it, so why would you trust your education to someone putting a book online? 

 

 

Why are we the #1 School for Home Inspection Training?  It's simple when you take a closer look!  We have been one of the country's premier Home Inspection Schools due to our total "Hands-On Training", 7 day 24-hour support and our 100% success rate with every student passing the final exam!  Since 2004, HomeSpection® Training Institute has offered world-class, home inspection training from one of the best instructors in the industry.  Joe Jefferys is an Ohio Licensed Home Inspector and a Certified Master Inspector with 43 years of experience and over 17,000 inspections under his belt!  In addition to teaching this profession at the college level, Joe is also a Journeyman in Electric, Carpentry, HVAC and Plumbing.   Joe personally takes calls daily from 5am to 10pm with any questions...no other school or instructor will do that!  And unlike other schools, your instructor will NOT be out in the field competing with you for business!

In our pre-licensing Advanced Home Inspection Training Course you are trained by an instructor with over 43 years of experience in the field as an Ohio Licensed Home Inspector, a Certified Master Home Inspector, and as a college level instructor in this profession.  A Certified Master Inspector will be mentoring you, both during and after training, as you perform real home inspections in the field, finding all defects in the home, and showing you how to properly write inspection reports using the software.  Approved and licensed by the Ohio State Board of Career Colleges and Schools (Registration No. 13-11-2031T) to Certify Home Inspectors in Ohio.  This course also meets the pre-licensing requirements for many states that require Home Inspectors to be licensed.  Upon graduation, students will have a thorough knowledge in all aspects of the home inspection industry and be well-prepared to seek employment as a Licensed or Certified Home Inspector or to start their very own Home Inspection business out of the comfort of their home.  We prepare students looking to start their own business by training them in business start-up, marketing, and providing on-going live support directly from their instructor.  Our students receive live, seven day, 24-hour support that is good for life with no extra fees.  Most schools charge their students for online or blog support, meaning you may have to wait days to get the answers you need.  HomeSpection® also provides our students with everything they will need to be successful; we buy all your books and class materials, all the inspection tools you will need to perform a General Home Inspection, you get a 1 year free membership to InterNACHI, ($500.00 savings) and the best live support in the industry right from your instructor.  The "Hands-On" training you receive includes inspecting your first six homes out in the field, being trained on the report writing software while here in class, as well as an additional 24 hours of field inspection and software training doing your four practice property inspections. 
 
You've probably seen us in national magazines, newspapers, commercials, on the internet or maybe you have spoken with one of our successful Licensed or Certified Home Inspectors.  Most visit our site due to disliking their jobs, being laid off or getting sick of jobs that go nowhere year after year. Being a Licensed or Certified Home Inspector is one of the most rewarding professional careers as reported by Entrepreneur Magazine and Money Magazine.  In 2016 the US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that home inspectors can make $56,040 to $88,830 a year!  However, many of our students service multiple counties, with some making well over $200,000 a year!

In addition to our Advanced Home Inspection Course, we also offer a Radon Measurement & Testing Course, a Certified Microbial Assessment Training Course, and a Radon Mitigation Training Course. The Advanced Home Inspection course provides total "Hands-On" training in the classroom and out in the field and goes into more detail than the typical Basic Home Inspection courses.  Through our total "Hands On" training in the classroom and out in the field, we enhance the student's understanding in the following areas: Roofing, Plumbing, Structural, Environmental Issues, Grounds and Drainage, Foundations, HVAC, Air Conditioning Systems, Heating Systems, Water Quality, Water Flow, Biological Agents, Allergens, Asbestos, Wood Eating Pest, Insulation, Ventilation, Interior, Exterior, and Electrical.  During training, our students inspect their first two homes out in the field, and then are trained on the report writing software how to prepare a General Home Inspection (GHI) Report.  We also train our students in marketing and business promotion, providing them with the skills to build their own successful business if they choose. We are now enrolling for 2019 Fall & Winter Classes starting on Monday December 2nd (Two seats left!), Monday January 6th, 2020 (Three seats left!), and Monday February 3rd, 2020 (Call for availability).
 
The pre-licensing Radon Measurement & Testing Course is designed to give students a thorough knowledge of the science of Radon, Radioactive Decay, types of radiation, health risks of radon, how radon enters and moves through buildings and homes, as well as the different types of measurement devices.  Students are also trained on the importance of developing and using a Quality Assurance/Quality Control Plan.  This two day, 16 hour course is required by the Ohio Department of Health as a prerequisite to obtaining your Radon Testing license and we are nationally approved as one of the few schools in the country and the only school in Ohio by the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB) and the National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP).  This course meets the pre-licensing requirements for Ohio and any state that licenses Radon Testers.  Our 2019 classes have been averaging over 93% passing rate!  We are currently enrolling for classes on November 20th & 21st (Five seats left!) and December 18th & 19th (Seven seats left!).

Our Certified Microbial (Mold) Assessment Training Course is designed to give home inspectors a basic understanding of microbial contamination and the equipment used during an assessment.  Students will learn how to recognize the presence of microbial contamination, how to collect samples for laboratory analysis, and provide the basic understanding of how to interpret laboratory results.  The class will focus heavily on Construction Science and how construction techniques create elevated moisture conditions.  After taking this class, you will look at a home differently because you will learn that microbial contamination is only a symptom, and moisture is really the problem.  This is a one day, eight hour course, and we are currently enrolling for our next class on Friday December 13th (Six seats left!).
 
Our pre-licensing Radon Mitigation Training Course is a three day, 24-hour, course that is taught hands-on both in the classroom and out in the field installing a radon mitigation system.  This Radon Mitigation class covers indoor air quality diagnostic testing, the design, installation, and troubleshooting of radon mitigation systems, worker health and safety, radon in water, ,and preventing radon in new homes.  After completing this course students will be able to install a radon mitigation system.  This is an essential course for home builders and inspectors, HVAC and plumbing contractors, environmental consultants, indoor air quality professionals, public health officials, and nonprofit health advocacy organizations.   If you are looking to get licensed by the Ohio Department of Health as a Radon Mitigation Specialist you must first complete the Radon Measurement Course.  The October 2019 Mitigation class had a 100% passing rate!  Our Radon Mitigation Course has been approved by the Ohio Department of Health and the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB).  We are currently enrolling for our next Radon Mitigation Courses starting on Friday December 20th (Eight seats left!).  We are the only Ohio-based school to offer the Radon Mitigation Courses and Radon Testing Courses.

We are an Accredited School with The Better Business Bureau® since 2012 and have always had an A+ rating. In fact, we have NEVER had one complaint! Our reputation, testimonials, and our student's 100% successful passing rate prove this. We are very proud of the fact that 100% of our students passed the Certified Home Inspectors final exam on their FIRST try!  Again, we contribute this to our total "Hands-On" Training in the classroom and out in the field, and our Instructor's 43 years of experience as an Ohio Licensed Home Inspector and as a Certified Master Inspector!
