ASHI Education Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) has teamed up with Casey, O’Malley & Associates (COA) to provide professional, in-field home inspector training through The ASHI Schools. This joint venture provides a full range of high-quality education programs to anyone affiliated with, or interested in, the home inspection industry and related professions.
According to Barton Robertson, managing associate, The ASHI School, “Seasoned inspectors agree that learning by actually doing inspections is the key to success. The ASHI School features live educational classes that include more time on real field inspections than any other school in the nation.”
Nearly half of the live course hours are spent learning by doing real inspections. The courses are designed as an intelligent blend of pre-class study materials, live classroom lecture and actual in-field inspection training. Courses will include, but are not limited to, state and governmental pre-licensing; continuing education; and specialty classes for new and existing inspectors. Moreover, courses will focus on starting and operating a successful inspection career and business as well as performing inspections in compliance with the ASHI Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics.
“At a time when the home inspection industry’s education philosophies are in need of re-engineering, The ASHI School keeps existing ASHI members up to speed with cutting-edge expertise and provides new members with a stepping stone for becoming an ASHI Certified Home Inspector,” said Jeff Arnold, executive director/CEO, ASHI. “Additionally, our joint venture with COA allows ASHI professional home inspectors to continue their education with the nation’s two most respected figures in the industry-Michael Casey and Kevin O’Malley-and the most experienced and dynamic class instructors in the profession.”
The ASHI School is scheduling pre-licensing/business start-up home inspection classes nationwide. Classes are presently forming in San Diego, Chicago, and Connecticut. Contact Barton Robertson at the www.theashischool.com.
