Home Inspector Defect Recognition Course

Fees: $199 | Hours: 12 | Type: Online | Enroll

PHII's Defect Course contains 10 lessons with over 275 interactive computer flash cards that include Grounds, Exterior, Structure, Roofing, Attic, Basement, Plumbing, Electrical, Interior, and HVAC. Each flash card fills your computer screen with a defect photo and challenges you to identify what is wrong and what is the proper course of action. You click a button to flip the card and see the answer. Review the course over and over again!

Why Use Flashcards?
Learning home inspection requires time seeing and responding mentally to defects, and flashcards are a proven method of reinforcing learning and improving retention. Remember using flashcards to learn your multiplication tables in elementary school? The only difference is that our flashcards are online.

We compiled these defect photos from many houses we've inspected across the country. You are almost certain to encounter some defects you have overlooked in the past. This is an excellent course for all levels of home inspectors because it teaches defect recognition for beginners, but it can also challenge the seasoned inspector to determine exactly what is wrong and how to explain it to the client. As you complete each lesson, you will receive instant online feedback so that you know how you are doing. When you finish the course you will possess the knowledge and skills needed to report on a variety of defects.
