Before you can become a certified home inspector in the State of Arizona, you must complete 30 parallel inspections with a licensed home inspector. Inspection Training of Arizona will coordinate with participating inspection companies throughout the valley to help you fulfill this very valuable training.
Field training consists of real home inspections, up to four students may attend with one inspector. The student will observe the inspection of all the various visible and accessible systems and components in the home and its exterior. They will also have the opportunity to observe how the inspector interacts with the clients, seller and real estate agents and how information about the home is conveyed to the clients through the inspection report.
The students will be required to fill out their own inspection report forms as he or she follow the inspector around the property.
Even if your state does not require parallel inspections for licensing, time spent on field inspections can greatly enhance a student's understanding of the whole process.
