How to Become a Home Inspector in Texas

  1. Understand the work and evaluate your skills

    Depending on your level of comfort working with HVAC systems, plumbing or breaker panels, you may have a steeper learning curve. This is ultimately an entry-level career, but if you've got a "handy" streak in you (or a reputation for being able to fix stuff), you've got a natural advantage in becoming a home inspector.

  2. Learn Texas' licensing requirements

    You'll need to know everything the state requires before planning out your training.

  3. Get trained

    Leap into a new career with the BEST home inspector training program in the country.

Getting merely licensed and certified won't cut it. To be the best, you need training from the best.

In Texas, the three levels of home inspector are: apprentice inspector, real estate inspector, and professional real estate inspector. To be a certified real estate or professional real estate inspector, you’ll need an extensive amount of supervised hours under a professional real estate inspector, UNLESS substitute training is obtained through RETS or other approved training programs.

Be Qualified. Not Just Certified®.
