Preparing you for technical and business success as a home inspector
Industry statistics show that the average home inspector earns $70,000 per year – and almost 20% of home inspectors earn over $100,000 a year. You can earn this too, if you are prepared for success.
Home inspection is a professional consulting practice. You need a professional education program to learn what you need to become a leader in our industry.

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 have greatly expanded my knowledge. In conclusion I have to take a word from the MasterCard commercial, the Carson Dunlop Home Inspector Courses are PRICELESS.
Your training was clearly the best course available and I opted to purchase it even though full VA reimbursement was available for some other home based training courses. I have been extremely pleased with the quality of the training provided by your program.
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.
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.
A Buyer’s Choice believes in quality education. Carson Dunlop’s Home Inspection Training Program is the best in the industry, bar none. It’s why we partner with them to educate our franchises. We’ve looked at them all, and they stand alone.

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.
I’ve worked with Carson Dunlop Associates since the 1980’s, as a home inspector, building failures researcher, writer, publisher, educator, so this very positive review of the company is hardly neutral. The company provides home inspection services in Canada and the U.S., home inspection eduction, and home inspection reporting services. The company and the people at Carson Dunlop with whom I’ve dealt over decades has been without equal in professionalism, competence, honesty, and generosity. As a result Carson Dunlop has become both a “Go-to” resource for building inspection and building science, and the home of people whom I count as trusted friends.
