Program Description

Online class
This online program is designed for those who have a solid knowledge in the building trades and are looking for a convenient and affordable way to meet the mandatory requirements of the State of Illinois. This program meets the classroom requirements, but you will also need to attend the field training portion of this class in order to be allowed to sit for the state exam. You will have the option of attending a live field training classes at no additional cost, or you can participate in five one-on-one inspections to receive private coaching for an additional fee. The private coaching fee is $250 (usually $50 per inspection).

This is a self-paced class which requires reading from the assigned book which is included in the fee. You’ll also be building a home inspection report as you travel through the program. In addition, each section has a quiz to confirm that you have the knowledge to proceed. These quizzes can be taken from your home. The final exam is a proctored exam. We will assist you in finding a proctor to witness you taking this exam. You will have full access to the instructors during, and after the classes as support while you build your business.

You will have 200 days to complete this class and take a proctored test.

Once you complete all the requirements for this program and passed the exam, you will be allowed to challenge the State of Illinois Home Inspector Exam. After successful completion of the state exam, and after you mail in your application and fees, you will be a Licensed Home Inspector in the State of Illinois.
