In Texas, you will need to obtain your Professional Real Estate Inspector license from the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) to inspect without supervision. The first step is to complete the required 154 hours of qualifying education. Move through these 6 online courses at your own pace.
You’ll learn about Texas law and Standards of Practice, how to analyze and report your findings, business operations, and the technical components that you need to know for inspecting. Prepare for the national and state portions of your licensing exam with the included textbook and reference materials. To complete your required education, you will also need to attend 40-hours of practicum (guided live practice inspections).
