ON-CAMPUS AND ONLINE DELIVERY

How many homes are put up for sale a day? Many — and every one of them could potentially have a home inspection. Qualified home inspectors are in demand, and you will learn the skills you need to expertly examine roofing, structural, electrical, HVAC systems, plumbing, insulation, interior and more at Sheridan.

Sheridan’s Home Inspection Training program, in partnership with CarsonDunlop and Associates, incorporates and complies with the Standards of Practice of ASHI/CAHPI (American Society of Home Inspectors/Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors).  It also conforms to the Professional Home/Property Inspector Occupational Standards developed by the Canadian Home Inspectors and Building Officials Steering Committee for National Standards (CHIBO).

Upon graduation, you will be qualified to perform home inspections. You will also have the academic entrance requirements of the Ontario Association of Home Inspections (OAHI), except for the Defect Recognition and Reporting course, and the Ontario Building Code course: Part Nine - Building Envelope and Part Nine - Health and Safety, which are available through the OAHI.

To earn your Recognition of Achievement and qualify for recognition as a Home and Property Inspector, you must complete all courses listed with a minimum grade of 70% in each course.

These Sheridan on-campus courses are a combination of in-class lectures and independent study (assignments, field visits and on-line work).  Students are required to attend seven in-class lectures per course (every other week) as well as the on-site exam at the end of each course.

Please note that course material is not included in the course fee.  Students must purchase their materials directly from CarsonDunlop Associates prior to the course start.

In addition to your Sheridan Recognition of Achievement, you can request a Certificate from CarsonDunlop Associates, call 1-800-268-7070.

After graduating from this program, you'll be qualified to inspect new homes as well as older residences. You can seek out full-time employment with a home/property inspection company or become a self-employed home inspector who offers their services to agencies as well as individual home owners/buyers. The choice is yours, and your education starts now.
