Consider a career in the home inspection field. To learn the necessary skills and prepare for the state licensing exam, sign up for the 60-hour Home Inspection Pre-Licensing course offered by McHenry County College's Continuing Education Department. The next class takes place from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday nights from Feb. 18 to May 15 at MCC, 8900 U.S. Hwy. 14 in Crystal Lake.
This training course will prepare future home inspectors for the state licensing examination. Areas from exteriors to electric to heating and many other topics related to home inspections will be covered. People who have knowledge in the building trades from remodeling, home handyman, contractors, fireman and tradesman are good candidates for this course.
Participants can start their own business or work in the field part-time to earn extra income. Many home inspectors use computer software and digital cameras to generate their reports, so some computer skills, may be helpful, but are not required. Other aspects of the home inspection business, including marketing and business start-up, are also covered. This course is approved by the Office of Banks and Real Estate and prepares students for the Illinois state exam.
Books and materials are included in the $895 course fee. Students should report to Room E217 on Tuesdays and Room E104 on Thursdays.
