I just got back in town this PM and saw this post. In my own mailbox I have the catalog with the 2 courses advertised in it. **There are probably 10,000 Thousand OR more of these catalogs out there **AND its posted on JCCC’s web site. Even if for some reason JCCC pulled it off the web - there will still be all the catalogs out there.
Each of the 2 ads say:
"The state of Kansas has passed legislation that will require individuals that want to become home inspectors to have 80 hours of education. This course meets the first half of that requirement. This course prepares you to become a home inspector by training you to pass the National Home Inspector’s exam and the American Society of Home Inspector’s exam".
#1 - To be gramatically correct, the ad does not say its course is approved by the Kansas Home Inspection Review Board, etc.
#2 - The Kansas State Board of Regents has NOTHING do with approving an 80 hr training class for home inspectors anymore than they do with the classes being taught for pre-licensing Realtors, Appraisers, General Contractors, Lead Inspectors, Asbestos Inspectors, Termite Inspectors, UNLESS someone is trying to structure the home inspection bill’s rules / language to restrict entry by normal trades type groups AND steer it to Corporate Type Training Schools OR those trainers affiliating themselves to Giant Vo-Tech Schools OR Community Colleges.
Since I’m sure we don’t have anybody trying to pull that crap, I’m guessing this whole thing is a big POS mistake OR somebody just got eager OR phrased their words in a way easily misunderstood.
