Home inspector training in Canada varies from one provider to another. While Alberta and British Columbia are currently the only provinces that regulate the home inspections industry, the Canadian Institute of Home Inspectors provides the most comprehensive home inspector training for all provinces.
Choosing where you obtain your training from is one of the most important steps to make in your home inspections career. Choosing the right school will provide you with the most thorough education which includes both course content (books) and hands on training (in class). This will allow you to be a professional inspector who can educate your future clients about their home(s) while guarding against possible defects that could become a financial disaster for you or your client.
The Canadian Institute of Home Inspectors aims to provide the most comprehensive training in Canada for future home inspectors using detailed, easy to understand, course material. We recommend you study this material before arriving for the in class portion of your home inspector education. During the in class portion of your home inspector training, you will join other students beginning their new careers as home inspectors allowing you to establish a peer network.
