I don’t know. You nailed my thoughts though. A school website is to a potential student as a home inspection brochure is to a client… it is a little taste of what the product being promoted is going to be like. I always tell NACHI members that your client gets to see a preview of your report writing work before he decides to hire you. It’s when he/she is reading your brochure. If your brochure is light and weak… the potential client figures your inspection report will be similar.

And since it’s listed for about 1/2 the price of the more reputable schools here in Illinois, I would wonder about the content!

As to the price, It seems Ok to me. I attended classes at a locak Community College (Oakton) that is on the state’s list or approved instructors. The entire 60 hour course, complete with and additional 20 hours of field and lab work, cost 395.00. I also took a special, Saturday, 10 hour class in preperation for the state exam, which cost 75.00.


Are these guys approved by the state?

Well, if the state says they are OK, who am I to argue. After all, it is the state that says I am OK.

How about an “in-depth, hands-on” course specializing in Home Inspections. Course runs for 300 hours and cost is $3,000.00 LESS


a NACHI Discount of $500.00


All books and literature provided.

Would that be priced reasonable?

How do you think it would go over in the States?

Just wanted to post an update here.


It was brought to my attention my previous post could be misconstrued.

I have nothing but good things to say about Chuck, Corey, Steve etc. as instructors. They were informative and easy to work with.

Not even a problem with the fees. No one forced me to write the check or take this particular class!

For A$HI guys, they aren't half bad! ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif)

So, Chuck, Corey, Steve, please accept my apologies if I offended or slighted any of you. Was not my intention!

I too have too agree . Chuck ,Correy , and Barry did a great job teaching . icon_lol.gif I do feel that a lot of the pices are starting to fall in place. It takes time bulding this business , some times you feel like you are alone out there , and other times you feel like you are involved in a business with people who do care about success. It dosen’t matter the group but the ethics and the standards are kept up for all to coexsist icon_lol.gif
