Hello everyone, New here from Soutwestern Ohio. I’m looking to do a slow transitional career change until I’m ready to go full time on my own. I’m currently researching training. Does anyone have any recommendations for real world training experiences? I know that interNACHI has free training with paid membership, but then you’re on the hook for the additional real world experience. Here are the only one’s currently licensed by the state.
HomeSpection is $2995 and you get the real world experience
Hondros is $2499-$2999 and you get the real world experience
InspectionGo is $1995 and you’re still on the hook for the real world experience
PDH is $1895 and you get the real world experience
PABI-No information I could find anywhere online
ASHI-No classes in Ohio but $2100-$3195
InterNACHI-$499 and you’re still on the hook for the real world experience
AHIT is $695 for the online course. You have to register to find out about local classes, so no clue on that cost or if the real world experience component is included or not.
So obviously interNACHI is the cheapest overall, but then I have to figure out how to get the peer review or 10 concurrent inspections. I’m leaning towards PDH, but that takes a good chunk of the budget away for a side hustle while I still work a regular job and plan towards going full time with my own inspection business.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
