And busshy too;)
If you are doing framing and new home warranty inspections, AZ ASHI is having an inspect a house on a framed stage house on March 10.
From what I gather this is a custom home in the framing stage with many, many problems, by attending you will have the opportunity to see and hear what the expereinced local guys are looking for and commonly write up on these inspections, the local city building inspector will also be there to give his perspective on his inspections.
Ahh now… I always try to help my fellow AZ inspectors. :o :o
Seriously myself or nobody else has any other way to offer to help them excel unless they come foreward and accept the help AZ ASHI members offer all inspectors, to me no class room training can beat this type of hands on training and shared experiences, hopefully the information shared by all, will keep all inspectors that attend out of court and not on the wrong side of the table at the BTR.
The cost for non members, 175.00 which includes continental breakfast and lunch…
No Problem… I think Cheryl does a great job with no $$s to work with] I am more than willing to support her efforts.
One suggestion though, can you post the auctual CE courses seperate from the non ce, ie, home shows, realtor show stuff etc.
It’s tough for an old guy like me to wade thru all the non ce stuff to find the good stuff.
I was loking at the course outline and it doesn’t seem like there is enough actual training. There seems to be only a couple of hours dedicated to the hands on tour. I don’t know about it yet, it seems pricy for what may turn out to be only a couple hours of hands on training. I would be swayed if it was a multi-day course. If you have more details though, please enlighten me.
From my knowledge on previous inspect a houses, its not intended to be actual class room training. It’s [as of 2 PM today apx 50 ] new and experienced inspectors, split up in groups of 8 or 10 performing the inspection all at the same time on different areas / stations of the home, usually 10-15 min per area, for 2 or so hrs and then everybody gets together, during and after lunch, another 2 or 3 hrs, to discuss their findings , ie: properly identify the defect, why it should be corrected, how they would write it up to assure it gets corrected by the builder along with experienced guys sharing their experiences on how to deal with the builders, how to get these inspections, ligitation experiences in general and most likely including defects identified on this house, and hearing the perspective of the local Bld. inspector.
Heck if it wasn’t in Wickenberg, and it wasn’t so expensive (why?) and it was’t a new construction phase inspection (Not offered by Dwelling Doctors, ea$ier looking for termite$), and it was’t on a weekend, I might consider it.
But if you want to ride around in my Jeep this weekend Dan I’ll be in Sedona.
Considering the cost to market this or any seminar, food, cost to likely pay $s to access the home, 6 -8 hours of hands on experience, if you miss one item by not knowing what others that attend will know, it’s really not that expensive.
[heck even a plind pig can find an acorn sometimes]
Construction phase this one is, if your doing new home warranty inspections or newer homes where the builder has up to 10 years liability ,there are potentially 100s of items that will play a factor in them that most would not properly identify without this hands on experience.
Heck take your jeep to the horse trails and farm fields in Wickenburg first and get some horse and cow pies on it before going to Sedona:p
Question for you Dan…I notice that the CEU requirments for HI’s in your state say that a course that is approved in another state can be acceptable for credit in your state…so if a course already has CEU credits in lets say Texas…by reading the statute is your state saying it will accept a course approved by another state to be acceptable for credits.
Just asking because thats the way i read it…in the R30 247 statute…any thoughts?
I spoke with Valerie at NACHI yesterday and she indicated that only five people had signed up for Pauls course. That is too bad cause I was gonna bite the bullet and join NACHI as well as attend Pauls course. Is it still on??
