Home Inspection Field Training

Follow an experienced home inspector on a live inspection

Individual field training consists of a one-on-one inspection with ASHI Certified Home Inspector Dan Kopp (Inspector# 244451). Dan has been in the construction industry since 1988, is a former California Licensed California general contractor (CA Lic#781522), and is an Inspection Training Associates (ITA) Graduate (June 2001). Dan has personally performed over 4000 home inspections since 2001. Field training gives you the opportunity to observe the inspection of all the various visible and accessible systems and components in the home and its exterior. You will also have the opportunity to observe how the inspector interacts with the clients, seller and real estate agents and how information about the home is conveyed to the clients.

Trainees may take notes and fill out their own inspection report form as he or she follow the inspector around the property.

Time spent on field inspections will greatly enhance a new inspectors understanding of the whole process. That's how I did it, I attended over 100 field training inspections with Senior Home Inspector Austin Chase prior to starting my business and what I learned attending those inspections is an important part of my success today. Best of all, you get personal one-on-one time with the me including the opportunity to ask questions and learn trade secrets which will help you avoid making your own costly mistakes!
