Free Home Inspection Classes for Home Inspectors online

By
Education & Training with Merrell Institute ~ Appraisal Education Network

HUNDREDS OF HOURS OF COURSE THAT CAN BE COMPLETED OVER THE INTERNET TO HELP YOU LEARN ABOUT THIS FIELD AND BECOME A BETTER HOME INSPECTOR. SOME ON-LINE COURSES WILL ISSUE YOU A FRAMABLE CERTIFICATE, OTHERS WILL NOT- THESE ARE FOR YOUR INFORMATION. THEY ARE NOT NY STATE APPROVED FOR LICENSING OR CONTINUING EDUCATION, BUT MOST OF THE RECOGNIZED ASSOCIATIONS ACCEPT THEM FOR ASSOCIATION CE CREDIT!

Below is a list of some FREE on-line courses that have some relevancy for Home Inspectors. Some of these courses are more relevant to inspectors who perform commercial inspections. These courses are meant for supplemental continuing education knowledge and should not be used as a replacement for any required education that your area may require.  Many thanks to all who gave me links to share with my students!  If any link is out of date, we will attempt to update these monthly.
