Field-based practical demonstration of the inspection process under the direct supervision of a licensed Florida Home Inspector (20 hours)

The first part of this course is dedicated to field-based practical demonstrations of the inspection process while under the direct supervision of a licensed Florida Home Inspector. The first of the field inspections focuses on the overview of the eight mandatory parts of an inspection with the main emphasis on the external parts of the home. The student will learn identification of the components, their purpose and possible abnormalities. The overview will help the student develop a standard procedure for initiating an inspection. As the student progresses through the first inspection lead by the instructor, the student will learn how to take appropriate notes, pictures and tests. The student will deliver a hand written report of findings for this initial phase. The second field inspection requires the student to inspect the exterior portions with limited direction by the Florida Home Inspector. Once the exterior has been inspected to meet requirements of the Florida Home Inspector, emphasis will be placed on inspection of the interior parts of the house by the instructor. As the student progresses through the second inspection lead by the instructor, the student will learn how to take appropriate notes, pictures and tests. The student will deliver a typed report of findings for this second phase of the field exercise. The third hands-on field exercise requires the student to perform a complete field inspection of all mandatory components including all photographs and tests while under the supervision of a Florida Licensed Home Inspector. The student must then deliver a formal written report including photographs, tests taken and results of the complete home inspection as would be required for delivery to a client.
