This class is primarily intended help new inspectors prepare to take the National Home Inspector Examination (NHIE). Experienced inspectors will also benefit from attending taking this class. We will cover some topics you have forgotten, or that you were never taught. Each question is similar to one that might appear on the NHIE. An audience member will offer an answer. Some questions are followed by illustrations or pictures to help you visualize and remember the concepts. New inspectors are strongly encouraged to study the recommended texts prior to participating in this class. This class will help reinforce concepts that you already know, and will help you analyze questions to increase the odds of selecting the correct answer.
