LearnAtYourOwnPaceInterested in a career in Home Inspection but afraid of the commitment involved with going back to school? Distance education courses may be right for you. Many recognize the benefits associated with receiving reputable Home Inspection training, but worry the program will interfere with their current lifestyle and livelihood. At Carson Dunlop, we understand that just because someone is considering a change in careers, it doesn't mean they're willing or able to put their lives on hold - which is why we offer our Home Inspection training program in a distance education format. Distance education offers students many benefits, including:

    • The ability to learn at your own pace
    • No travel or accommodation costs
    • No need to take time off work

According to Study Magazine, "Distance education programs are a practical option these days for busy adults, parents with children and even high school graduates who prefer to continue working, often full-time, while earning a post-secondary credential."*

The Carson Dunlop Home Inspection training program offers the same educational content, resources and applications, regardless if it is taken in-class or through distance education. Distance education allows students to complete the program at their own pace, from the comfort of their home. It works with your schedule, not against it. Being technically savvy is not a requirement - the program is intuitive and easy to use. Inspectors, tutors and instructors are available via phone and email to answer questions and ensure students are comfortable with the material.

On the effectiveness of the course, one student determined, "The information layout of the manuals combined with the videos is a tool that can only be described as value-added. The details such as description, what to look for, reasons why and what to do for each module are very well formatted and have greatly expanded my knowledge. In conclusion I will have to take a word from the MasterCard commercial on the Carson Dunlop Home Inspection course: PRICELESS." 

Although Carson Dunlop consists of experts in Home Inspection, we turned to the education professionals for help with our training. We worked with an education design consulting company and distance education specialists from Memorial University to produce the premium Home Inspection training program in North America. Our education format has been proven over the last decade with thousands of students excelling in both Canada and the United States.
