10,000 Parts to a Home: Introduction to Home Inspections Course

InterNACHI has a new course called “Introduction to Home Inspections Course.”

In the course, the student will learn:

  • the InterNACHI® Home Inspection Standards of Practice (www.nachi.org/sop);
  • how to perform a home inspection;
  • how a home works;
  • how to find problems that may exist in a house (what we call “defects”);
  • how to fix those defects; and
  • how to maintain a home.

This course was written for:

  • home inspectors,
  • people who want to be inspectors,
  • contractors who make home repairs; and
  • real estate agents who work with inspectors.

Just like the engine of an automobile, a house works as a system of interdependent parts. Every part has an impact on the operation of many others. A typical home has over 10,000 systems and components. And they’re all connected in some way. What happens when everything works together in the most desirable, optimal way? The homeowner is rewarded with a house that is durable, comfortable, healthy, and energy-efficient.

A home inspector can play a critical role in keeping a home well-maintained. If a homeowner hires an InterNACHI® Certified Professional Inspector CPI® as part of a routine maintenance plan, that’s a good decision and money well spent.
