Home Inspection Pre-Licensing Training
Prepare for the Illinois Home Inspection State Licensing Exam with this state-approved course, consisting of classroom, online, and in-field instruction with two live home inspections. Topics include the physical components of a home, communication skills, knowledge of professional practices, what may go wrong as well as the cause and implications of problems that result. Participants will receive clear direction concerning what to look for during an inspection, such as signs of non-performance due to old age, deferred maintenance, weather damage, and poor workmanship. Our instructors are experienced licensed home inspectors and active members of The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). Upon completion of the approved pre-licensing course, applicants must pass the Home Inspection State Licensing Exam before they are eligible for a license in the state of Illinois. (Cost of exam is NOT included in the course fee.) E-mail access and an Internet connection are required. Classroom instruction will be held at Kishwaukee College for all but the last date.
