Begin your Home Inspection career with help from Hondros College

Home inspection involves performing physical inspections of newly built or previously owned homes or buildings and report on the condition of each of the mechanical systems, components and structure.

Imagine a hands-on career that will have you climbing over, under and through houses searching for any defects that could cause problems for the owner or prospective owner. Professionals in the home inspection field physically inspect the entire home or building and complete a detailed report on the condition of all components, mechanical systems and the overall structure. The report is then used as a tool for making important decisions regarding the purchase of the home or building or factors such as its insurability.
