Toronto, ON (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
Carson Dunlop and The Division of Continuing Education at York University have formed a strategic training collaboration to provide a comprehensive career home inspection training program. This program is offered completely online and the learning content is delivered in a highly visual and easy to understand format. 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 program covers all aspects of the home inspection profession and was created by two leaders in the field – the American Society of Home Inspectors and Carson Dunlop. The 10 courses that make up the program were developed in collaboration with education design consultants and distance education specialists.
“We are thrilled to be working in collaboration with York University,” commented Alan Carson, President of Carson Dunlop. “The ability to offer our program through a reputable University creates new opportunities for individuals looking to pursue a career in the home inspection field.”
The Division of Continuing Education in the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies at York University offers part-time and full-time non-credit courses, programs and certificates to respond to the need for continuous, lifelong learning in a rapidly-changing and globalizing labour market.
This program leverages Carson Dunlop's 34 years as a leading consulting engineering firm in the home inspection field. Carson Dunlop has been educating home inspectors since 1990, through classroom instruction, books and online courses, conference presentations, webinars, papers and articles. The program uses a consistent methodology across 10 textbooks and CD-ROMs, focusing on practical applied knowledge rather than theoretical discussion. As part of the education program, Carson Dunlop provides students with free use of its cloud-based report writing system, Horizon, to help them develop the necessary report writing skills.
York University will be hosting an information session on Thursday September 20, 2012 from 6pm-7pm; location to be determined. Please RSVP to Marina De Bona at mdebona (at) yorku (dot) ca.
