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.

e 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.
