Washington State Home Inspector Training

Home Inspector with King of the House Home Inspection, Inc. Home Inspector Lic #207

At Bellingham Technical College our next four week home inspector training course begins on February 4, 2019. Anyone interested in taking the course should act soon. We keep the class small, to augment personal instruction, and we accept only 12 students per course. Students benefit from that policy, here is a compliment that came in my Email. 

"Thanks for all the helpful feedback on my field inspection report! And thanks for putting together a great course, I really enjoyed it."  LH
AT BTC, which is the only state college designed home inspection training course, we sought out  capable and dedicated instructors. Here is a photo of our newest faculty member. Dylan Chalk currently teaches HVAC-Heat and supervises student field training.

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 that follows provides an accurate overview of the upcoming class.

 This fast-track training program takes a student from start to finish in four weeks (20 days). Classes usually meet, with the exception being months with holidays, M-F from 8AM to 5PM.

After the course, faculty provides online support to help 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 a high pass rate among our students who take the state licensing exams.
