Default Re: How to pick a home inspector training program?

I used AHIT and passed the state test first time around, but I also took advantage of every mock inspection I could find.

I thought the printed study materials AHIT provided were very useful and informative, but you really do have to read them cover to cover, preferably twice.

Their on-line materials are the pits. They don't mesh with the printed materials, are boring, and consist mainly of talking heads. I gave up on them and just buried my head in the printed materials.

Their tests are also the pits. Miss-spellings, typos, poorly-worded questions, contradictory "right" answers, you-name-it. The plus in all this is that it motivates you do go outside the curriculum and find out for yourself.

I have no experience with ICA, so can't comment.
