Environmental Hazards Course

Environmental Hazards: Lead, Asbestos, Formaldehyde, Radon for Home InspectorsFees: $299 | Hours: 8 | Type: Online | Enroll

Environmental hazards like asbestos, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, lead, and radon are outside the scope of a typical home inspection. However, many homebuyers and homeowners are concerned about these dangerous and sometimes life threatening hazardous materials existing in their homes and for that reason, environmental hazard inspections are often included as an additional service when someone purchases a home inspection.

This course is an introduction to environmental hazards as they relate to the housing and construction industry.  Each lesson identifies a specific hazard, how to recognize it, how people become exposed to it,  how to test for it, and ways to mitigate the problem. After completing the course, you will be more aware of the environmental risks that exist and how to
