2018 Winter Conference 

North Carolina Licensed Home Inspector Board Approved Continuing Education

 January 26 & 27, 2017

Get Your Continuing Education Requirements Done Early, Then Don't Worry About It For the Rest of the Year!

Come join us for our Winter Conference to fulfill all 12 hours of NCHILB continuing education, and 16 hours of ASHI education requirements.  The bonus 4 hour session, Predrywall Inspections, can be used for newly Licensed Home Inspectors for additional CE credits.  All licensed inspectors who did not attend a pre-licensing program must take an extra 4 hour elective during the first 3 years after receiving their license.

ASHI Standard Deck Inspections

Think you know how to inspect a deck?  Think again!  After taking this class, you will know why inspecting decks is more complicated than most inspectors realize. You will never look at a deck in the same way again.

This class gives you the knowledge you need to inspect decks and identify defects based on objective standards, not just on your opinion. You will learn how to prioritize defects, and how to report defects to your clients so that they can understand and use the valuable information that you provide.

NCLHIB Mandatory Update Class

Using NCHLIB Suggested Lanugage in report writing.

Predrywall Inspections

Predrywall inspections are not home inspections without drywall.  This is a different inspection during which you inspect different components using different criteria. Much of what we will cover may apply to home inspections too.

Predrywall inspections can be a great source of income, or a great source of liability.  The difference lies in knowing what to inspect and what to look for.  This course gives you the tools you need to better serve your client and to avoid liability. 

This course shows you: (1) what components you should inspect, (2) how to identify deficiencies, (3) how to report your findings, (4) how to manage client expectations.
