Home Inspectors 14 Hour CE Course / Renewal
The Contractors Institute is now proudly offering a DBPR Approved Home Inspectors 120-Hour Pre-Licensure Course. The course emphasizes Florida’s unique conditions, codes, techniques, materials. Featuring comprehensive training for Florida Home Inspectors doing inspections in Florida’s humid climate. (Not a course designed for other states.)
Specific to Florida, our 120-Hour course covers the 8 components of a home: the structure, electrical system, HVAC system, roof covering, plumbing system, interior components, exterior components, and site conditions that affect the structure as well as other conditions that impact residential homes in the State of Florida. The course includes EVERYTHING necessary to complete Florida’s state requirement AND pass Florida approved Home Inspector licensing exams.
Your course is $995 and will be open to you for one year. Course tuition covers the cost of all printed and e-book references for the course, and the Exam Reference required for the open-book ACICP exam (sign up at acicp.org – the EXAM FEE is NOT included in the tuition). A RETAKE FEE applies if you have not completed the course within one year ($395 for 6 months)
Course tuition includes:
*Florida Statutes and Rules governing Home Inspectors
*The Complete Book of Home Inspection by Becker
*The Complete Guide to Home Inspection by Robinson/Litchfield
*Residential Rehabilitation Inspection Guide, US Housing and Urban Development (use for the ACICP. exam)
*Access for one year to the online course with informative videos, recorded classes and quizzes with a practice examination developed by licensed instructors (a retake fee applies if you don’t complete it in one year).
*Demo copy of Palm-Tech Home Inspection Software
*Template forms for reports, agreements, and wind mitigation forms.
When you are finished with the online course, you will need to take our final two-day LIVE CLASS in Hudson, Florida which is a true “exam prep” course for the home inspector exam. Should you choose the ACICP exam, you can take that exam live (pencil/paper) following the second day of class (it is also avialable online). Visit acicp.org for details.
