Joe T - here is a link to give you a general idea. It is an introductory (baseline) course - providing a wide range of topics, such as plumbing, heating, electrical, structural, and much more including legal responsibilities and safety. Each brief module runs approximately 2 to 2 1/2 hours and provides inspectors with a good overview of home inspections.


Generally but not always they bring experienced inspectors and subject matter experts in to deliver a portion of the course.

Thanks Claude:


Looks like a challenging course. I saw where the CD is available from the OAHI office.

The cost is $26.75 ($25+gst) for those who have taken the course or who are scheduled to take the course; members = $53.50 ($50+gst); and for those not scheduled to take the course

My bold, does this mean that I can order a CD?

In my opinion the Defect Recognition CD is not worth $53.50 for non-members.

Thank you Raymond:


Why? ![icon_question.gif](upload://t2zemjDOQRADd4xSC3xOot86t0m.gif)

How would you compare the CD to the Carson Dunlop "Electrical CD"?

I also looked at your web site and found some additional information, like the Guide you helped to Author. Is that guide available?

Hi Joe


The Carson Dunlop CD is much better. The book Home Care: A Guide to Repair and Maintenance Publication
Produced by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) is available through CMHC. (http://www.cmhc.ca) Actually I was on the steering committee and helped with the content and revision of the book.

As to the Oahi Defect CD it is very basic and runs through several simple mutiliple choice questions with photographs. Stick the Carson Dunlop material in my opinion.

You can call CMHC at 613-748-2016 to order the book.
