At BTC, the only state college to offer approved and college accredited home inspection training, we sought out capable and dedicated instructors. Here is a photo of our most recent addition to the faculty. Dylan Chalk 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 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, (Memorial Day in May) M-F from 8AM to 5PM. When there are holidays, we add a Saturday class.

After the course, our 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.
