testimonialI'm semi-retired and moved to Florida a few years ago. I had a home inspection done and decided to learn how to become a home inspector. Your home inspection training jumped out at me because I could take the course online from home and use my iPad. It took a little more than three weeks to finish the course, but less than one week after receiving my Florida home inspector license to start my own business down here and inspect my first home. I'm now working 2-3 days a week and loving it! Thanks!
