We recommend that students complete at minimum the Building Inspector Course and Timber Pest Management Course, as this is what insurers are looking for.
You may find it difficult to get insurance without these two courses. Of course, we recommend completing all courses through the Combined Building and Pest Inspector course so that you are fully trained and across all aspects of building and pest inspections.
In Queensland you are required to hold a builders’ licence for a minimum of 5 years in order to carry out building inspections. In all other states and territories you are not required to hold a builders’ licence.
Students can choose between two payment options through our websites; upfront payment or a 12 week payment plant. These payment options are available for students to choose at the checkout when selecting their course.
At the end of your pest inspection course you are required to undertake practical experience with a licensed Pest Management Technician. You are required to fill out a workbook and attend jobs with your Pest Management Technician.
You will need to organise this practical task by contacting your local Pest Management Technician and organising days you can accompany them to jobs. If you’re having trouble locking down a technician, please let us know, as we may be able to put you in contact with technicians who have helped past students.
