Carson Dunlop and Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) have formed a strategic partnership to offer a career home inspection training program. The comprehensive 10-course 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 comprehensive education 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 Cuyahoga Community College,” commented Alan Carson, president of Carson Dunlop. “The ability to offer our program through reputable colleges creates new opportunities for individuals looking to pursue a career in the home inspection field.”
“The partnership enhances Cuyahoga Community College’s ability to offer quality, relevant continuing education to our students. The new courses will broaden the variety of topics currently available at the College. Strong community partnerships, customized employer training and other workforce development initiatives continue to be top priorities for the College through collaboration with business and community organizations,” said Chandra Dennis, Tri-C online education coordinator.
The education program leverages Carson Dunlop's 34 years as a leading consulting engineering firm in the home inspection field. Carson Dunlop has considerable experience in 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 6 months free access to their cloud-based report writing system, Horizon when students graduate, to help them develop the necessary report writing skills.
