HPIN 109 Inspection Field Trip
To be qualified to do house inspections a minimum
level of practical experience is required. This couse
provides a foundation for the required field training
The new "Education" requirements contained in the Home Inspection Licensing Regulation (HILR) resulted in the development of the Fundamentals of
Home Inspection Program (Program Outline).
New inspector applicants will complete the Fundamentals of Home Inspection Program (HPIN 104, 105, 107, 108, and 109), with at least a 70%
final grade in each, to receive a Program Certificate and Transcript to submit to CPBC as one of the basic licensing requirements.
Those wishing to advance to ASTTBC Certification must complete all of the individual courses listed on this page with at least a 70% final grade to receive
credit toward the equivalent ASTTBC Inspector In Training (IIT) course requirement. Once all the IIT prerequisite courses are complete, candidates can
continue with the basic requirements to become certified through ASTTBC
The tuition cost for courses is determined on a course by course basis, and tuition is competitive with other providers for the equivalent material.
