The program is focused on practical applied technical knowledge and learning to provide students with a solid foundation for success in the home inspection field.
The comprehensive 10-course education program covering all aspects of the home inspection profession was created by two leaders in the field – the American Society of Home Inspectors and Carson Dunlop. The 10 courses were developed in collaboration with education design consultants and distance education specialists.
“We are thrilled to be working in partnership with Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo, Iowa.” commented Alan Carson, President of Carson Dunlop.
