Carson Dunlop and Belmont College have formed an agreement to offer a career home inspection training program. The 10-course non-credit certificate program is available through distance learning. Content is delivered in a highly visual and easy to understand format. The program is focused on practical applied technical knowledge, providing a solid foundation for success in the home inspection field.
The program covering all aspects of the home inspection profession was created by two leaders in the field – Carson Dunlop and the American Society of Home Inspectors. The 10 courses were developed in collaboration with education design consultants and distance education specialists.
“We are thrilled to be working in partnership with Belmont College,” commented Alan Carson, President of Carson Dunlop. “The ability to offer our program through a reputable College creates new opportunities for individuals looking to pursue a career in the home inspection field.”
“The agreement enhances Belmont College’s ability to offer quality, relevant continuing education to our students.

The program leverages Carson Dunlop's 34 years as a leading consulting engineering firm in the home inspection field. Carson Dunlop has considerable experience on the education side of home inspection, including classroom teaching, published textbooks, online courses, conference presentations, webinars, papers and articles. The program uses a consistent methodology across the 10 textbooks and CD-ROMs. The focus is on practical applied knowledge rather than theoretical discussion. As part of the education program, Carson Dunlop provides students with free access to their cloud-based report writing system, Horizon, to help them develop the necessary report writing skills.
