News From the ASHI School


The ASHI School offers a full range of high-quality educational programs to anyone affiliated with or interested in the home inspection field and related professions.

Getting your home inspection training with The ASHI School is your best opportunity for succeeding in this growing profession. Pre-license home inspection courses are our specialty; however, we also offer several supplemental classes that can advance or enhance your home inspection career.

Our pre-license courses are designed to include an intelligent blend of pre-class study materials, live classroom lectures and hands-on home inspection training. At The ASHI School, you will receive more live field training than at any other school for home inspection. Most successful home inspectors agree that hands-on training is the best way to learn the trade, so we put you in the field nearly every day! We want you to experience actual home inspections on real houses so that you can learn from knowledgeable, practicing home inspectors who will guide you through the process.

In addition, when you take our home inspection class, you will receive a first-year associate membership in the American Society of Home Inspectors. This membership allows you to join your local ASHI chapter, and there are ASHI chapters located across the country. Being a member of your local ASHI chapter will increase your ability to secure “ride-along” field training with seasoned inspectors, provide you with numerous networking opportunities and help you continue to increase and refine your knowledge about the home inspection business from the best resources…ASHI Inspectors.

The ASHI School currently holds pre-license classes in California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and Washington state.

At all locations, courses are taught by ASHI Certified Inspectors who have a wealth of knowledge and experience. We believe that our educational program is the best because of these instructors and the highly regarded curriculum we offer through Carson Dunlop.

The ASHI School has recently added three new sites: In Columbus, OH, and Baltimore, MD, you can attend two-week courses in Home Inspection, and in Brentwood, TN, you can take our “Fast Track” program, which provides 40 hours of online instruction, followed by six days of classroom and field events.

In January 2016, the students at our site in Brentwood, TN, met a special guest, Ms. N. Avers, Executive Director of Regulatory Board, Commerce and Insurance, State of TN, Director of the Home Inspection Board.

We have made some significant additions to our curriculum, and we look forward to incorporating many more updates and additions in the future. The ASHI School has expanded its ancillary classes as well. We now offer a four-point inspection and wind mitigation class in Florida, a two-day live webinar on residential radon measurement and a three-day commercial class. In the past, we have offered mold identification/remediation and infrared imaging, and we hope to include these topics in our schedule later this year.

In addition, The ASHI School soon will launch a new 60-hour online Home Inspection Course. Stay tuned for details on this upcoming class.

The ASHI School provides a free set of the National Home Inspector Examination Manual and Study Guide to each student. These resources are must-haves to prepare for and pass the National Home Inspector Examination (NHIE). By providing these resources to each student, The ASHI School ensures that each student is fully equipped to study for the NHIE, which is required by many states.
