You cannot get a Virginia home inspector's license with on-line classes alone!

How To Obtain Your License:

 To become a Virginia home inspector, you are required to take a 35-hour in-person training course, pass the national home inspector's exam, and go on 50 inspections with a licensed inspector. If you'd like to cut the required field inspection requirement in half, take our 35-hour on-line class following completion of the live training course. By combing these, you're awarded a 70-hour certificate. The field inspection requirement drops from 50 to 25 inspections with our 70-hour certificate. Contact us to register and pay for the on-line class after you register for the live class. We will send you a registration link for the online portion. You can always wait and ask us about registering for the on-line course while attending the live in-person training course or at any time thereafter. 


Note: You cannot earn a Virginia home inspector's license with an on-line course alone. You cannot combine courses from different providers to get to 70-hours. 

About Our Classes:

Classes for licensing are pre-approved by the Commonwealth of Virginia. Our DPOR Approved 35-hour Pre-license Class will get your career in home inspection underway. The class begins with a review of Home Inspection Standards, ethical guidelines and we explain what a home inspector will be required to do.


 A home inspector must recognize the major components and systems in a house, understand their function and realize when they are not performing as inspected. In Virginia, home inspectors can't cite the building code, it's against the law. We cite the intent of the code. 

Over the four-days of class, we cover a broad range of topics; commonly seen exterior cladding material, windows, doors, surface water control, types of roof systems, foundations and structural systems inspectors typically encounter. A portion of the class will be dedicated to giving you a strong understanding of common interior systems and common defects found during a typical home inspection.

 The mechanical system topics included are electrical, HVAC, and plumbing. Unlike other schools that hold their class in a hotel room, we hold our classes in our own facility. We provide hands on education with on site equipment such as furnaces, water heaters, A/C and heat pumps to assist in your understanding and help you retain information. We feel nothing compares to a hands-on exhibit and we are routinely adding new displays.

Class Rules:


Classes begin each day at 8 am and run as late as 5:30 pm.

Short breaks will be given periodically
