Inspectors who get in trouble often share a common fault; they fail to comply with the applicable standard of practice. Sometimes this is because they don’t know what the standard requires. Often, however, this is because they don’t understand what the standard means. This class will help you with both. Join the former Chair and current Board Liaison of the ASHI Standards Committee in an in‐depth discussion of this important topic. Nothing is more essential to improving your inspections and reducing your liability risk than understanding and complying with the standard of practice.
Upon successful completion, participants should understand: (1) the purpose of standards of practice, (2) which systems and components must be inspected and described, (3) what elements are required in home inspection reports, and (4) how to apply standards to actual home inspection issues.
