    Most homes have imperfections. Many of them are simple annoyances, but some of them represent very real hazards. These hazards are not only found inside the home. Aside from the usual walls, windows, roof and foundation condition, there is still much to examine on the outside of any house. As a housing inspector, any surrounding condition that affects the values or usefulness of the home should be included in your report. Potential issues can range anywhere from complications with drainage to encroaching root structures. This course will focus on these and other potential exterior hazards and will emphasize the ways in which these outdoors hazards may affect the long term health of a home.

    Many people ask: "Why does a newly constructed home need an inspection?" "Isn't a newly constructed home perfect and safe?" Unfortunately, this is not always the case. There could be problems with the home that are not necessarily code violations, yet have serious consequences for the new homeowner. The last thing any homeowner wants to hear after they move into a home is that there is a problem that could have been identified during the construction process. Therefore it is your responsibility, as the inspector, to be certain that all of the components of the home, from the building structure to the mechanical systems, are functioning properly. This course will provide you with extensive information on residential home inspection and construction and will cover the entire building process literally from
    the ground up. The main topics of this course include site preparation, footings and foundations, framing systems, insulation and ventilation, HVAC, and mechanical systems. In addition, this course contains a number of drawings and photographs to illustrate the construction process.

  • Basic Foundation Construction

    A sound and strong foundation is essential to a home’s structural integrity and durability. When the foundation of a home is constructed incorrectly or poorly, the resulting financial loss due to foundation failure can be enormous. Evidence of foundation failure may scare many homebuyers away from a sale, or force the seller to accept less than what the property should be worth. As an inspector, you cannot
    see much of the foundation on a completed home. However, understanding construction techniques are useful for conducting construction phase inspections. This course will review and reinforce basic foundation training and knowledge and will provide additional insight that an inspector will require while investigating site preparation and construction during Phase Inspections. This course includes material using the International Code Council's 2012 International Residential Code for One and Two Family Dwellings (2012 IRC) Chapter 4 and other selected sections. The overall course level is beginner to intermediate, and encompasses subjects appropriate for both residential and commercial home inspectors.

    This course is approved by the Nevada Real Estate Division Administrator, "General" category. As a part of taking your IOS courses, a student must complete the evaluation form (#612b) at the end of each course prior to receiving the certificate of completion.
