Vocational
Home Inspecting

Home inspecting is a field tied with that of real estate; home inspectors go into a home to search a home and report on its condition. This is usually done in conjunction with a home that is for sale.

Students that wish to become home inspectors can achieve education through a trade or vocational school that is recognized by the state as an accredited home inspection school. A home inspection course of study can take several months, and include classes such as exterior structures, roofing, interior foundation flaws, electrical systems, and plumbing codes.

The majority of states in the U.S., 34, require that home inspectors have a state licensure. This will require a GED or high school diploma, a prerequisite training program and sitting for a written exam.

As a home inspector, workers are most often hired by the home buyer, to look over the home and deliver a report on any problems with the home's construction, components or systems. A home inspector will look at roofing, structure, air conditioning and heating units, flooring, and electrical systems.
