Commercial Building Inspection Training

Most people who do commercial building inspections started from a background of home inspections. Why? Because they already have most of the skill set required to do the work.


It’s not surprising that home inspectors consider doing commercial inspections. The benefits of doing commercial rather than residential inspections are staggering.

  • Earn 40% more money for working the same amount of time
  • No need to work weekends or evenings
  • Timelines for providing reports are typically longer
  • Clients are typically making business decisions based purely on financial considerations. Clients are not emotional couples struggling over a lifestyle decision.
  • Inspections are less invasive
  • Have significantly less call backs from unrealistic clients
  • Commercial inspections are not seasonal. This allows you to even out the peaks and valleys in your home inspection business

What Former Course Attendees Have To Say:

I commend you on your Commercial Inspection course.  Your presentation and supporting materials were executed at the highest level.  The course was well worth the fee. I will recommend you to anyone wishing to increase their proficiency in the inspection field.

Too many things are left unsaid, so I’d just like to thank you for the commercial class in Ft. Laud. Not only for the wealth of information, but also, and especially,  for the overall point of view and attitude that you conveyed. Profession, yet relaxed; Principled, and practical. It was a great experience, and a wonderful learning opportunity.

Austin Boleman

I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you for a wonderful class. I for one really appreciate the experience and knowledge you shared with us over the last 3 days. The class is one of the best and most informative that I have attended. You are an extremely gifted speaker and bring a lot of class and professionalism to your training. I went into the course with high expectations and you exceeded them. I learned a lot more that I thought I would.

Sean C. Van Ryder  – President – Colt Inspection Services

I am in my 9th year in the inspection profession and I believe that the Commercial Inspection Course was probably one of the best courses that I have ever taken.   I applied some of the techniques that I learned in the class at a Commercial Inspection on a 26,000 sq. ft. office complex 2 days after the course and found the information invaluable.  Mr. Weldon was a great instructor who really knew the course material and could also instruct the material so it could be understood.   I would recommend this course to anyone considering Commercial Property Assessments.

There are no more excuses for NOT doing commercial inspections.

  • The course was excellent and in depth. From a commercial appraiser perspective, it should be added to the Appraisal Institute’s (in Chicago) course selection.
