Note the tuition and fees are competitive with BCIT and other providers for introductory home inspection courses, but the Fundamentals of Home Inspection includes material beyond
a simple introduction.

There are some lower cost programs being offered in the marketplace. Be careful to review exactly what you get, and perhaps more importantly what you don't get, from lower cost programs.
