Australian Inspector Training

Course Overview

Your course is split into two sections, building inspections and pest inspections.

In the building inspection section you will learn the essentials needed to conduct building inspections in accordance with the Australian Standards.

The pest inspection course covers the 5 units needed to attain a pest management licence.

Please note that as part of your pest inspection course, students are required to undertake practical experience with a licensed pest management technician. Students will need to fill out a log book noting the set tasks they complete with their supervisor, as outlined within the pest course. Students need to organise their own practical experience by contacting their local pest management technician and accompanying them to jobs.

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!
