We are pleased to announce the confirmation of a two-day seminar/field trip on "Inspecting and Identifying Heritage Homes".
This seminar was originally produced by Cam Allen for another home inspection association, which felt it would be too technical for most home inspectors. Cam introduced it to a number of attendees at the InterNACHI-ECO September meeting in Kingston, where he received a very positive response.
We are now prepared to offer this seminar to anyone who is interested... however you should have at least, some level of home inspection experience to realize the full potential of participating in this seminar.

We were pleased to receive a direct donation from InterNACHI to cover the entire cost of the breakfast and lunch menus for both days. InterNACHI-ECO would like to thank InterNACHI National for this continued support.
HOW DO I GET TO GO?
