SVCC to Offer Home Inspection Course

January 2011

Sauk Valley Community College will offer its Home Inspector course for those interested in home inspection and taking the Illinois State Home Inspection Exam. Classes will meet from 6 to 10 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, January 31, through March 16, 2011 at Sauk.

This course, approved by the Office of Banks and Real Estate (OBRE), covers all major elements of home inspection. It is geared primarily for working adults with a reasonable working knowledge in the building trades, architecture or engineering fields. However, this course is also excellent for appraisers, insurance adjusters, and property managers interested in gaining knowledge in home inspection, or for home inspectors who want a refresher course before taking the state exam. State law requires all Illinois home inspectors to become licensed.

Students will gain experience through interactive learning, increase their retention through an evenly-paced format, and increase their success with small classes taught by practicing professionals. Successful completion qualifies graduates to challenge the Illinois State exam for home inspection.

Cost is $775 and includes course fee, books, and all materials. For more information on this class or to register, call Sauk's Office of Personal and Professional Development at 815/288-5511, ext. 212. This program is in partnership with William Rainey Harper College.
