“Ahmed was a key catalyst for my entering the Home Inspection Industry. In consulting with Ahmed, he took the time to carefully map out the pathway through the Carson Dunlop training program through to successfully opening my own business. Inspired by his deep knowledge of the industry and motivated by his enthusiasm, I enrolled in his program at Carson Dunlop. After completion of the program, Ahmed continues to provide critical and timely information in the setup of my business PAV Properties and strategic marketing ideas. Ahmed has been, and continues to be a motivating source behind my business.” - Peter Villalta
“Today I got confirmation that I’ve successfully completed the home study program. The reason I’m writing is to tell you that I found the materials to be excellent study aids. The materials were thorough and professionally done, and I’m glad I made the decision to study from home.” - Steven Ekstein
“I want to thank you for making the 12 binder course on home inspection so user friendly. This helped make units quite easy to learn as the language used, the diagrams, appropriate segmentation, the field exercises, Q and A, and video brought a multi faceted approach to learning. At every turn your pedagogical senses were so evident that I thought your background had to be from a graduate school of teaching rather than home inspection per se.” – Kurt Weinberger
“Many thanks to the comprehensive and informative, yet user friendly education system that you have produced. I can’t imagine going into Home Inspection without it.” – T. Walker
“I just completed my last exam. I cannot imagine how anyone could possibly be “professional” without this course!!” – P. McFarland
“I would like to say that you have done an excellent job in teaching this course, your knowledge, experience and the way in which you present the material is done in a very professional manner….congrats and well done!” – Paul
“I’m nearing the end of the Home Inspection Training Program and recently went on an interview with a local inspection company with multiple inspectors and the owner being the head of the ASHI chapter here. I’m now training with the company and will be employed full-time shortly. My future employer told me that he receives several phone calls weekly from job seekers and the reason I was chosen in part is because of my participation in your excellent program. Thank you!” – J.D. Troost
“Material that has been provided is excellent, attention to details is well highlighted. Excellent instructor, has good depth of knowledge, good sense of humor, presents materials very well. Terrific job!” - Chad L.
“It was very thorough! I do not come from a construction related career and was looking for a complete training program to feel comfortable with my new career. This program was great. I am finding that I know things that other seasoned inspectors don’t. This is exactly what I needed.” – Ben P.
“I liked the whole program. The course is so in depth and is by far superior to any other program on the market. The tests are excellent and are a great preparation tool.” – Harry L.
“I’d definitely recommend the course to anyone who was serious about the Home inspection business. Great course!” – John B.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to have participated in your fine program. I have always tried to create the very best career opportunities that I could for myself. My education years ago as an IBEW trained Apprentice and subsequent graduation to Journeyman Wireman has proven invaluable to me in my career as an electrician. Now as a Carson Dunlop trained inspector, I feel comfortable knowing I have again received the very best training and education available. Thank you for your support. “- O.N
“The information layout of the manuals combined with the videos is a tool that can only be described as value-added. The details such as description, what to look for, reasons why and what to do for each module are very well formatted and has greatly expanded my knowledge. In conclusion I will have to take a word from the Mastercard commercial on the Carson Dunlop Home Inspection Course – PRICELESS” D.H
“I looked around for other companies providing training on home inspections in California. There are some good ones for having “real-time experience” professional inspectors with “actual” equipment as test subjects. But in terms of the training material in texts, I found that no one can really compare to Carson Dunlop.” – Tommy J
“Hi Ahmed, I just received my certificate from Carson Dunlop for the home inspection training program. I am very proud of that and the fact that I had chosen Carson Dunlop education services to start a new career in the home inspection industry. The course material and testing were both very good, well explained and I do believe that it covered every possible aspect of home inspections. I am looking forward to starting my new business and this course has put me on the fast track to becoming a successful home inspector. I also want to thank all your staff at Carson Dunlop for being there for me through this process and for your friendly down to earth service. I am looking forward to continuing a future relationship with Carson Dunlop and Horizon. Regards,” – Earl Mercier
” Thank you. The course material has arrived and it looks fantastic. It is quite thorough and in depth. I am very much looking forward to studying and completing it in its entirety. It’s very informative and there is so much in here! I am excited by the prospect of learning everything I can and working hard to eventually become a qualified and quality home inspector.” – Rob L.
“I have read the Communications and Professional Practice Module and found what I thought may be a bit of a dry read instead was a very knowledgeable, well written and easy read. I have found the Roofing Module the same. I have taken many different training courses on many different subjects in the field that I am in now. I perceive that this Carson Dunlop course is at the top of the hill and raising the bar in the Home Inspection Profession. Thank you kindly for that.” -Bill Barber
“Thus far I have found yourself and Carson Dunlop to be a pleasure to deal with. Your website was informative and your customer service is excellent.” – Mark McManus

“Hi Angela, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for everything you did for me with the Heating 1 Module course. I am very impressed with your professional manner and the way you handle things quickly and efficiently. Carson Dunlop is fortunate to have an employee like you working for them.” – Steve Garland
“I have shadowed two different Engineers in the field on three inspections, and have really appreciated them taking the time to explain what they were seeing, asking me for my input and help, and for demonstrating the ins and outs of the forms. They taught me a lot. The biggest observation was not the inspection, but the correspondence with the customer and answering all their questions and concerns. I recommend your training methods very highly!” – David N.
“It seems to me that Carson Dunlop is the most relied upon source for accurate information in the Home Inspection profession and is regularly quoted, along with graphic illustrations by those in and outside of the profession. I am proud to say that I have successfully completed the course. I rely heavily upon its content, and would highly recommend it to others.” – Ray Segouin, RHI
” …In the past, ASHI Continuing Education approved courses have been disappointing. These people have done their home work. If you feel a little uncertain with a particular subject, you can pick up what you lack here. At $345 it seemed a little pricey. But last year I paid $495 for a 2 day course that taught the wrong information and I lost 2 days of work doing it.” George M.
“Your training was clearly the best course available and I opted to purchase it even though full VA reimbursement was available for some of the other home based training courses. I have been extremely pleased with the quality of the training provided by your program.” M.H. Captain, US Navy.
“The customer service was great. There was always someone available to answer my questions. The written material is also incredible. It was amazing to find out how much I did not know about home inspection. Without your terrific financing I could not have and would not have taken this program.” G. Oswalt
“Thank you for the information David, and let me add that the Carson Dunlop course is the best distance education program I’ve ever been involved in.” Garry Pigeon
“It’s a marvelous course by Carson Dunlop, covering every detail and every small thing that we will come across in the Home Inspection field!” – Syed A.
