COURSE
SCHEDULE

Are you ready to be your own boss, set your own schedule, help people make important decisions, and join in one of the most rapidly expanding career fields in the world?

If so, pour yourself a cup of tea (or coffee) and read on!

What Is Home Inspection?
A professional home inspector helps potential home buyers (or sellers) make informed decisions regarding the condition of the property. This includes structural, plumbing, heating, electrical, safety and environmental concerns.

The inspector then provides his or her client with a written report on the findings of the inspection, and remains available for future consultations.

Why choose ASKUS Consulting Home Inspection Training?
Our Mission:
"ASKUS Consulting Home Inspection Training School wants our students to be successful professional inspectors. To do this, we not only teach the proscribed New York State Curriculum, but also include information and material on effective business operation and incorporate years of field experience into your instruction."


What does ASKUS Consulting Home Inspection Training offer?

Our training program incorporates a series of modules that fully satisfy the New York State Department of State education requirements for becoming a NYS licensed home inspector. These are:

Your tuition gets you not only the New York State Department of State 100 hours classroom training and 40 hours of hands-on field inspection training. You also receive basic tools, continuing consultation, available assistance on website development and business operations, and a one-year membership with InterNACHI (NOTE: InterNACHI membership is contingent on successful completion of course requirements and InterNACHI entrance testing).


What requirements do I need to meet?
Surprise! You do not need a background in construction, carpentry, plumbing, HVAC or electrical trades. And by the way, women often make great inspectors. New York State licensing requirements are:

A Professional Home Inspector License is valid for two years. Renewal requires 24 hours of continuing education credits in each two-year licensing period.
