Almost every course we try to invite a former graduate of our Institute to come and share their experiences with current students. This provides our students with up to date information on setting up a new home inspection business, courses required, choices of reporting systems and some of their first hand experiences in the field.
This direct feedback from former graduates enables our students to come away from this course with a very realistic set of goals and expectations. As many of our graduates have established very sucessful home inspection businesses, it also emphasizes what is possible when you combine a good business plan with lots of enthusiasm.
