This is my first post and was wondering if there is someone out there that may be able to help me out. I took an online/corspondence home inspection course from pcdi canada. I believe their american counterpart is ashworth community college. I am on the verge of finishing up with it however I am a bit confused on a couple of things.
- I joined oahi as a member however I find that their association lacks organization and it seems that there is essentially only one individual responding to emails and phone calls. That put aside all of their courses are quite expensive. Would it be prudent to join internachi after passing their exam? I am a bit concerned in the area that will it be valid in ontario,canada? I have heard that the govt is in the process of regulating the home inspection industry, and I dont want to be hung out dry once this enforcement takes place.
- Although pcdi gave a wealth of knowledge I still lack the practical portion of the education. I dont feel comfertable in starting my own business and adveetising it without practical knowledge. I did some research and found that carson dunlop offers a three day practical course however it costs $880!!! Is there any other options out there for me?
