Hi there. I’d like to get some info from y’all if you don’t mind.
I'm considering taking the home inspector course at a local jr college near me. IL requires licensing, so I guess this is a prep course (60hr) for the exam.
My first question (although I'm sure it's pretty relative) is how likely am I to learn enough from such a course to actually be able to do the job.
I was a paramedic a number of years ago, and most of the classroom training I received was tossed out the window when I got on the job. Is it along the same lines with this home inspector training?
Second question, how much tag-along time with a working home inspector will I require before I could do the job solo? Again, it's a relative question, but a ballpark answer would do.
Third question, what kind of earnings could I expect? Inspectors around here charge ~ $400. How much of that goes to overhead (and what kind of overhead costs are there). Did you guys start off working for someone, or went solo from the start?
Thanks in advance for any info. ![icon_smile.gif](upload://b6iczyK1ETUUqRUc4PAkX83GF2O.gif)
