Our self-paced, online home inspector class follows a step-by-step process to make it easy for you to obtain the vital knowledge to become a licensed home inspector and start your inspector business.

This convenient course addresses the entire home inspection process using instructor presentations, GoPro video footage of actual inspections, and other supportive materials with access to materials for 12 months and access to AHIT instructors for life.



In the state of Virginia, you will be required to obtain a home inspection license through the Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation. The first step in obtaining this license is to take either 35 hours or 70 hours of education. AHIT offers 70 hours of education to minimize the number of ride-along inspections you will have to complete after class.

When you register for our training, you will immediately get access to our self-paced online course, and your physical textbooks will be mailed. These materials will help you to prepare for your live class. During your 8-day live training, you will learn from our experienced instructors who have done thousands of inspections and spent years in the industry. They will take you through the entire inspection process, step by step, from start to finish. You will also go on four practice inspections through real local homes to put your new skills into practice.

    Coming into class I inspected 5,000 to 7,000 houses as an insurance adjuster and real estate appraiser. The past week’s education and textbooks has doubled or tripled my knowledge. The marketing session will make it happen!
