A home inspection certification gets your foot in the door the same way a high school diploma might qualify for you for an interview. Meet the bare minimum and your success will reflect it.
Be more than the minimum. A dedicated home inspector training program makes you qualified, not just certified. ATI offers online and live courses to prepare you for the field and help you become your own boss.
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®.
