This is gonna float your boat. One of the local ASHI guys saw this web site and sent it to me. With the new Kansas Law for home inspectors in place, it looks like the school over in Leavenworth is getting geared up to really start cranking out new home inspectors.

Then go there and scroll down the page to the 80 Hour Day Class (for the new KS Bill) - then scroll down a little farther and check out their New 80 Hour Alternate night and weekend classes for Kansas.
If I counted correctly there 12 classes (every month) next year in Leavenworth. Thats not counting the 1 or 2 they do at Johnson County Community College, NOR the ones the ASHI guy said they’ve heard the group in Leavenworth hopes to start doing down in Wichita OR out in West Kansas.
That would go along with the push by them and 1 of the KS HI review board members (at the 1st Board meeting before the Board had even introduced themselves to each other, etc. someone had already written up about 30 pages of proposed rules and regulations for them to REGULATE inspectors. One of those rules was that ALL pre-licensing classes were to be put on by a Kansas State Licensed Facility under the State Regents Board). Thats Vo-Tech schools, community colleges, universities, etc. The Board Members were told that all Kansas Licensed professions are controlled under the Regents Board. There are 56 state licensed professions in Kansas. Ones like doctors, dentists, engineers, etc may fall under the State Regents Board - Others don’t.
Since the folks out in Leavenworth are set up teaching at the Johnson County Community College - If someone pushes a Regulation **REQUIRING **all training to be under Vo-Tech schools, community colleges, universities, etc. that would qualifiy the Leavenworth school, National ASHI’s training partners ITA and Carson-Dunlop and other LARGE national franchisees, and almost no one else.
