Carson Dunlop Field Training: There's No Substitute for Experience

Posted by Thea Scrimger on Mar 11, 2013 4:15:00 PM

HANDYAt Carson Dunlop we believe when it comes to mastering the Home Inspection profession, there is no substitute for experience. The benefits of hands-on experience are not only recognizable in the Home Inspections our consultants perform, but are also built into our Home Inspection training program. The Carson Dunlop Home Inspection Training Program is the most comprehensive system available. We ensure clear communication and effective learning, inside and outside the classroom.

In addition to our well-recognized and broadly adopted study program, Carson Dunlop also offers a field training program. This one-week, hands-on, intensive session complements our Home Inspection Training Program. It allows students, graduates and Home Inspectors to apply their knowledge and refine their skills in a safe and comfortable real-world field environment.

Most adults learn best by doing, rather than watching or listening. That's why this program includes five, 8-hour sessions, offered Monday through Friday. Each day you will inspect a different house with an experienced Home Inspector who will guide and instruct you. It’s a lot like training wheels – you are running the inspection, with a bit of help. With the instructor’s guidance, you perform the inspection yourself and write your own inspection report. Then you work with the instructor, comparing your inspection report to the instructor’s. This is where you ask questions and discuss report items and findings. The process combines low stress with high learning, and allows you to hone your skills in risk-free situations.
