HIU -Illinois

Home Inspection University РIllinois 

is a partner school with the
International Association of Certified Home Inspectors.
This group is formed from leaders throughout Illinois.


If you’re looking to start a career as a home inspector, it’s important to choose a reputable and comprehensive training program. Home Inspection University stands out as a top choice due to its extensive curriculum, hands-on field training, and experienced instructors.

With 80 hours of online coursework, Home Inspection University’s pre-license curriculum covers all aspects of home inspection, including the Illinois law, roofing, exterior, structural, electrical, plumbing, and heating and cooling, interiors, insulation, and ventilation, as well as wood burning appliance systems. The online program is self-paced, allowing you to start at any time, and you’ll have access to a number of quizzes to help prepare you for the Illinois home inspector exam.

But what sets Home Inspection University apart is its commitment from the leaders in the home inspection profession to providing students with personal support from some of the most successful inspectors throughout the State of Illinois. There are five mandatory live field events that take place in person, where you’ll have the opportunity to inspect actual houses alongside experienced instructors. This type of real-world training is essential to preparing you for the actual profession of a home inspector, and Home Inspection University’s use of actual houses sets it apart from most of the other programs that rely on you following another inspetor.¬† These events force you to do the inspection and you will be able to compare your notes to other aspiring inspectors.

Personal meetings with myself, or the main instructor, Charles Bellefontaine, can be arranged by appointment to clarify any of the course materials. Everyone one of the instructors bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the program. I am thrilled to be a part of this group.

Furthermore, Home Inspection University is licensed as an Education Provider under the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulations (IDFPR). The Pre-License course is also licensed by the IDFPR. The school’s reputation is solid and consistently exceeds students’ expectations.

Finally, Home Inspection University offers continuing education classes to help you maintain your license and stay up-to-date with changes in the industry.
