Bellingham Technical College's next home inspector training course that begins on October 9, 2017 is full. I have never seen one of our classes fill-up so quickly. Once registration began, we were at full capacity in 45 days. Often there is a slot or two open right up until the first day of class. To keep the class small, so we can provide personal attention, we will only accept 12 students per offering. Our next course is scheduled for early February 2018.
BTC's Don Hester, Eastern Washington home inspector and course instructor
State law requires inspection students to obtain at least 120 hours of training, and BTC is the only state college level course that offers substantially more credits ( 135 clock hours) than minimum -- a full 15 clock hours above the baseline. In addition to acquiring the training and certification necessary for licensing, our students earn state college credits!
Along with our focusing on standard areas such as structure, electric, plumbing, etc. as of recent times, per state law updates, the current course includes study of swimming pools/spas, yard irrigation systems, and alternative methods of construction. The video below provides an overview of the course.
This fast-track training program takes a student from start to finish in four weeks (20 days). Classes meet M-F from 8AM to 5PM.
After the course, the faculty provides online support that helps students prep for state exams. The BTC class, also, presents an overview of wood destroying organism education and WSDA licensing options. These are some of the reasons BTC has an exceptionally high pass rate among our students who take the state licensing exams.
