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 5 field events by a Professional Licensed Home Inspector. Please call to register the date and location of your lab 3 weeks prior to date of field inspections you want to attend. 217-825-3035

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 are the complete field inspections held? (some schools hold the labs out of state)
2. Does the instructor have 5 or more years experience as a licensed home inspector?
3. Will the training consist of at least 5 complete property inspections?

Labs held at these Illinois locations:
Chicago, Des Plaines, Plainfield, Pocahontas, and Joliet
