H.I.T. Interactive Media Group, in conjunction with the National Association
of Certified Home Inspectors, has announced that it will bring its Certified Well
Sampler training course to InterNACHI chapter events around the country. Certified
Well Sampler is a unique course, designed specifically for home inspectors and
those who collect well water samples for testing. The course examines many aspects
of wells and their functionality including construction and operational methodologies,
red flags, and water quality.
Topics covered in this program include well components, characteristics, contaminants,
operation, sampling methodologies, holding times, health factors, safety, environmental
factors, and national guidelines.
Well testing involves more than drawing a quick sample. Well characteristics,
construction, and general proximity to any number of potential sources of contamination,
can and do affect water quality. Many individuals who draw samples for water quality
testing often operate under a cloud of incorrect information and misconception.
Common mistakes are regularly made, ranging from missed clues prior to samples
being drawn, to care and custody of those samples, including allowable holding
times. Finally, a course has been crafted specifically for those who engage in
water quality sampling, and is an absolute must-have for any inspector offering
these types of services. A certifying exam is given at the conclusion of the course.
Certification is offered exclusively through the National Association of Certified
Home Inspectors, the nation’s premier home inspection association. The course
is offered exclusively through InterNACHI and HIT Interactive Media.
