College courses or online?
First off the cost and time. Our course is affordable
for student's. We are one of the few Canadian Schools
that conduct virtual hands on training as well as
ongoing support, mentorship and distance learning. There
is no home inspection school in Canada that supports its
students thereafter such as ours.

The Inspect4u course is recognized
for licensing in the provinces of Alberta and BC the
only provinces to license home inspectors in Canada
currently, all other provinces our course is recognized
and accredited towards certification of home inspectors
by national certification with the Canadian National

ready to inspect?
Almost 95% of all home
inspectors work comes from Real Estate agents, the good

inspections to them as they know what we do and home
inspections is part of the RE clause in every home
sale. One has to build relationships with them and we
train you for this in-class.

field of home inspections?
preferable to have building related or some mechanical
knowledge but like any career change one wishes to do if
your lacking or have weaknesses in a topic we do guide
and encourage our students to complete upgrading in
select topics they struggle with.

will be inspecting part-time or full-time it can take
from 1-3 months from course completion to working for
real money in the industry.

There are no further costs
involved with our training program however there are
costs involved for licensing, association registration,
tool costs etc.
