Home Inspection Program

This program provides an opportunity to enter an exciting and growing profession. Home inspection is a consulting service that helps home buyers make informed decisions about their prospective new home.

The Carson Dunlop and Associates program has been adopted by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), and is also recognized and recommended by the Canadian Association of Home & Property Inspectors (CAHPI) in all provinces. The Carson Dunlop program complies with ASHI Curriculum and Standards of Practice. The program also meets the Professional Home/Property Inspector Occupational Standards developed by the Canadian Home Inspectors and Building Officials Steering Committee for National Standards (CHIBO).

The systems and components of a house include roofing, structure, electrical, heating, air conditioning/heat pumps, plumbing, exterior, insulation and the interior. The courses in this program have been organized to address each of these, as well as to provide students the communications skills and knowledge of professional practice required to be successful in this growing industry. Emphasis is on very practical knowledge of the performance of the systems and components of a house, not on theory.

Curriculum has been organized into courses that describe the materials used in the construction of each house system and how they are assembled. Content covers what may go wrong as well as the causes and the implications of problems that result. The program gives students clear direction concerning what to look for during an inspection: signs of non-performance due to old age, deferred maintenance, weather damage, and poor workmanship. It is this aspect of the program that distinguishes it from the knowledge of contractors or other building professionals.
