I am on board. First and foremost I love to teach and am passionate about my chosen profession and would love to teach others.
The problem with our industry isn’t to many inspectors it too little of GOOD, QUALIFIED inspectors. What better way to prevent idiots from ruining the name of the profession than teaching them.
I have seen what hap hazard testing does. It ruins our names and profession. What better way to combat that then from the inside? You let idiots teach you are going to be doing $99 inspections. Teach them what the profession is worth, make them work for it and instead of uneducated lowballers you will get qualified inspectors and do inspections for $499.
Would you rather do 100 jobs at $250 or 50 jobs at $500? Some will look at this like an income generator, I look at it like a increase in professionalism.
I was a instructor for 7 years in the army and loved it!
The field is bloated with HI’s now. We can’t see a big rise in new HI students like we did in the recent heady RE fiasco…so let’s bloat the field with HI instructors.
Existing HI thinking…
RE sales are way down; not many inspections happening…get certified as an instructor, promise riches to any newbies* I can suck in and…make a lot more money teaching!!

There has never been a stronger demand for home inspections and qualified home inspectors as there is today. This is due, in part, to deficient construction practices, materials and workmanship as well as awareness of environmental hazards and a need to protect today's consumer who is better informed and wants maximum value for what is often the largest financial investment of his/her life.
We’re doing this school worldwide, in some 60 different countries. We’ll need veteran inspectors who like to travel initially as most countries have no inspection industry to speak of. It’s all new to them.
