About our Property  Inspection Institute

We have only one goal: To help you with your professional inspection career

Our Mission Statement:

The Western Pacific Property Inspection Institute is committed to providing those wishing to become professional inspectors of residential real estate and commercial properties, with access to quality education despite work and personal commitments or living in a location which precludes attendance in classroom based programs.

We provide participants with the flexibility to take courses from anywhere in the Province of BC or beyond, while still continuing to work and live in their home communities.

What drives everything we do

The "Education" requirements contained in the Home Inspection Licensing Regulation (HILR) resulted in the development of the Fundamentals of Home Inspection Program (Program Outline).

New applicants seeking a Home Inspector License 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 Consumer Protection BC (CPBC) as one of the basic licensing requirements.

Those wishing to advance to ASTTBC Certification must complete some additional requirements.

We also offer advanced courses in Property Inspection.

For more information on this, contact us.

HPIN 108 BC Building Code

Basic House Inspection education typically includes an introduction to Part 9 of the Building Code. A distance education version of this course is offered by BCIT (BLDG 1500) as an option for all ASTTBC House Inspection applicants.

Practical Inspection Lab

To be qualified to do house inspections a minimum level of practical experience is required. This course is a "virtual lab" introducing the inspection process and provides an opportunity to develop report writing skills - something every inspector must do well to be successful.
