Partnership to provide home inspection training at community college

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine, and DES PLAINES, Ill. — Southern Maine Community College and Carson Dunlop have formed a strategic partnership to offer a home inspection training program.

The comprehensive, 10-course certificate program is available through distance learning. Content is delivered in a highly visual and easy to understand format. The program is focused on practical applied technical knowledge, providing a solid foundation for success in the home inspection field.

The program covers all aspects of the home inspection profession and was created by two leaders in the field, Carson Dunlop and the American Society of Home Inspectors. The 10 courses were developed in collaboration with education design consultants and distance education specialists.

The education program leverages Carson Dunlop’s 34 years as a leading consulting engineering firm in the home inspection field. The focus is on practical applied knowledge rather than theoretical discussion. As part of the education program, Carson Dunlop provides students with free access to its cloud-based report writing system, Horizon, to help them develop necessary report writing skills.
