Training Specific to British Columbia

BC is different from the rest of Canada. It has a different climate. It has a different real estate market. And it has its very own licensing requirements for home inspectors.

A lot of home inspection training programs try to use the one-size-fits-all approach. But we’ve taken our 40 years of experience in the field and 50,000+ courses delivered, and created a comprehensive course tailored to BC’s weather, housing stock and regulations. That’s important, because what you need to know to be a great home inspector in BC is not the same thing you need in Ontario, or even Alberta!

All of our BC courses are created and taught by experienced, successful and active BC home inspectors. All of the images and case studies used in the courses are BC homes.

Our training program is approved by Consumer Protection BC and is endorsed by the Home Inspectors Association of British Columbia (HIABC).
