Welcome to
Home Inspection Pre-Qualification School
IL License Number: 452.000142

Thank you for your interest in the Home Inspection Pre-Qualification School (HIPQS). Licensed by the State of Illinois in 2005, HIPQS offers a State approved Home Study Course, Pre-qualification test with 5 Field Event Inspection Lab Course by a Professional Licensed Home Inspector with a minimum of 5 years full time home inspecting experience, and continuing education courses for the Home inspection industry.

The home inspection industry continues strong growth and has already proven to be a part of the real estate transaction process. Over the past 10 years there has been a steady increase in the overall volume of home sales and the percentage of homes inspected. This confirms that the home inspection business is a high demand service in a solid industry.

At the Home Inspection Pre-Qualification School we realize that buying a home is one of life's biggest investments. Much of the guesswork lies in not knowing the general condition of a home. You will share information with your clients by giving them the knowledge and confidence they need to make an informed educated decision. It is easy to see the value of a home inspection!

HIPQS is a State Licensed Home Study Course. The State of Illinois requires candidates to attend 1 day of Practical Lab that includes 5 field events by a Professional Licensed Home Inspector with a minimum of 5 years full time home inspecting experience. Labs are scheduled once each month both in the Chicago area and Carlinville, Illinois. Please call to register the date and location of your class 3 weeks prior to date of field inspections you want to attend.

The State of Illinois is very specific on the requirements of the education provider. Be sure to ask these questions when interviewing potential education providers.
1. Where is the one day lab conducted?
2. Does the instructor have 5 or more years experience as a licensed home inspector?
3. Will the training consist of at least 5 property inspections?

Labs held at these Illinois locations:
Chicago and Carlinville (south of Springfield).

Class starts promptly at 7:30 a.m. over at 5:30 p.m.
