I worked in the city for 20 years in construction. Then I’d come home and work on my own side work, I was always hustling, working around the clock just to make ends meet. It was killing my body; I was missing my daughter’s events and I never wanted to do something like that. I needed a change, and that’s when I found AHIT.

The experience was great. The instructor kept us attentive & interested with his method of classroom instruction. I loved the vast knowledge I received in the field & in the classroom to make me a great home inspector. Thank you AHIT!

My experience was incredible. I have a doctoral level education in architectural history and have an MFA focused on history as well as preservation. I came to the course wanting to learn more about how a building lives and the process of inspections more than to do this as a career. However, your instructors were so informative, and made the process so exciting, I am earnestly considering it as an option.

Each state has different education requirements. Some states allow online training while others require some form of live classroom/field training. AHIT customizes its classes by state to ensure we meet all the education requirements.

Not long at all! Once you obtain proper certification/license and start marketing yourself you will gain momentum. Most students say it takes a few months. Usually after one year of hard work, your business will be up and running well. Some inspectors are doing five inspections or more per week after only a couple of months. It really depends how well you market yourself and how motivated you are to achieve success.
