Excellent. What a great class and great for everyone who takes advantage and actually gets ICC certified.
I firmly believe that ICC is the way of the future for home inspectors entering the new construction profession here in Florida as we move forward.
While I know some contractors are becoming more lenient to letting us on because of the slowing market, I believe many were looking into letting only licensed contractors or code certified inspectors on their sites in an attempt to further restrict us.
We are only touching the tip of the iceberg with the new construction industry and the amount of business that is available. If every inspector was to get educated and trained, commit to educating the public and the real estate professionals, we would be doing more new construction inspections than resale home inspections in our industry.
The new construction market would dwarf the resale market if we all would get marketing the service correctly and collaboratively.
I have spent 3 hours this week reading up on energy efficient building in Florida and the energy star systems. It’s a constant reading and learning cycle no matter what lever we are at. But is all fun.
Keep up the new construction education now that you have time and get your ICC certification over with. You wont regret it.
