Cambrian College has partnered with Carson Dunlop and Associates to provide a program that satisfies the Standards of Practice of ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) and the baseline requirements of the OAHI (Ontario Association of Home Inspectors). Standards of Practice define a minimum and uniform standard for private home inspectors. Home inspections performed to these standards are designed to give the client all the relevant information regarding the condition of the systems and components of the home as inspected. The Carson Dunlop program is the only training program that fully complies with ASHI Curriculum and Standards of Practice.

The curriculum covers what may go wrong as well as the causes and the implications of problems that result, including non-performance due to old age, weather damage and poor workmanship. Emphasis in this certificate is on practical knowledge of the performance of systems and components in a house, not on theory.

Students pursuing the Home Inspection certificate program may wish to further their studies to become a Home Inspector and seek membership with the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors. Please refer to the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors website (www.oahi.com) for more information and their membership requirements.

Employment Opportunities

Home inspection became part of the real estate scene in the mid 70’s and since then, consumer demand has risen steadily. Approximately 60% of resale homes in North America are inspected and there is considerable room for growth in this profession.

Admission Requirements

It is recommended that students have some experience with the construction/housing industry but any adult may enrol in the certificate.
