The Training Safari

Meet David a recent InterNACHI online training graduate and InterNACHI partner school field training student. David is showing off his InterNACHI training course books right before his first field inspection session. I’m glad we could help Dave on his way to completing the home inspector journey. Stay tuned for more updates on Dave’s progress.

All the best with your endeavors, David.

Looks like you have a seasoned professional helping you.
*This gesture will give you a much needed boast to a hopeful carrier in defect recognition and consulting services. Not everyone is so fortunate. Remember that.

Long hours of training turn into long hours of becoming a successful business person. The reward, working for yourself, or with a team of motivated professionals with one goal in common, defect recognition and consulting.

Best of luck with your carrier choice, and keep us posted. You will never be successful if you do not engage with others.

Best regards.
Robert Young

So much fun on an InterNACHI field training safari. Trainee David encounters white fuzzy stuff.
No David it’s not mold but it is Efflorescence. David asked if it tasted like salt apparently @bgromicko1 said it does in one of his training videos. What we want to know is how does Ben G know?

Wow we’re on the ultimate training safari. Trainee David was very lucky to encounter a very rare and exotic species for our region. An old oil fueled boiler. Pretty cool to see one in the wild (at least for us in the south) even though it had been abandoned long ago.

You never know what skills you will need or learn on a training Safari. Repair skills were on the list for the broken Pex fitting.

While on another Training Safari David discovers the long horizontal crack in the basement CMU wall and more importantly learns that crack filler in a bottle is not fix for the failing CMU basement wall.

Wow who knew that home inspectors had to know and would see so much @$%# during a typical home inspection. This training safari really exposes the new trainees to the reality of being a home inspector.
(besides it’s not often you get a great prop for a photo op)
