Home Inspector Trainers, Staff, and Assorted Mavericks

Scott Newcomer (ATI founder and home inspection thought leader) was so put off by the current state of the training industry he decided to conquer it. He assembled a team of experienced and dedicated all-stars. Each trainer was accountable to students – including their training in business and in the field. NOT just exam scores. He branded this accountability as lifetime membership to the AAAHI.

If you got certified elsewhere and want to feel difference, try texting or calling your trainer about a problem in the field and see what happens.

. . . Wait, you don’t have their number? Learn more about the home inspector training school all-stars below.
