Why study both building & pest?
We encourage students looking to step into the pre-purchase inspection industry to complete both the building and pest inspection courses. We know that over 80% of pre purchase inspection market require both a building & pest inspection. If you’re only able to inspect one half of the job, you will price yourself out of the market. Your competitors are completing both building & pest inspections, and so should you!
