Inspection Education & Training This is a general forum for inspectors to discuss their educational experience, and to ask questions of InterNACHI's Education Committee. This forum is dedicated to the memory of InterNACHI member and educator Gerry Beaumont. Gerry was an avid proponent of education for inspectors and will be sorely missed.

Ben, is this course designed with the African Students in mind that belong to Inachi or is it meant for US Members, and if so, how is that going to help in Home inspections in the US.?

Since my interest in Kenton's excursion in Africa peaks my curiosity, I plan on taking the courses.

Just curious as to what Inachi's intent was with this field trip and help other Members understand also.

And thanks to Inachi for the continued Education.

It's written for training South African inspectors, but open to all.

As Director for International Development, that's exactly what I do... promote the home inspection industry and InterNACHI abroad.The home inspection industry is in a fledgling state in several countries, especially with recent surges of interest and the passage of relevant legislation. InterNACHI has 30 members in South Africa but there has been no training available to them that is specific to South Africa, where building practices are different both in building methods and work quality.
As an example... Roofs are not sheathed in South Africa. Roof-covering materials are hung from 2x2 battens whose spacing depends on the length of the tile or metal.
North American inspectors are welcome to take these new courses, in fact the one on soils is relevant to anywhere.
