These courses follow the International Standards of Practice for Inspecting Commercial Properties which has been a game-changer for inspectors since its initial approval as an International Standard in 2008. You will learn everything you need to know to start and operate a commercial inspection business or to start a commercial inspection services division within your existing company.
If you’re a certified or licensed home inspector, you qualify to become CCPIA-certified after successful completion of Steps 1 and 2. After attaining your commercial inspection certification through our online commercial inspection certification program, we highly recommend inspectors who are new to the commercial sector of the inspection industry attend our live Commercial Property Inspection Techincal Training.
As a result, you’ll be able to accept more commercial inspection jobs confidently and swiftly. Although attaining this certification in a generally unregulated profession will already help you acquire more jobs, holding the education and training you need to back it up is of the utmost importance and something we don’t say lightly. Plus, with more technical training you’ll get better at working with specialty consultants, rely on them less, and maximize your ability to execute commercial inspection projects with or without them — leaving your client satisfied or even impressed.
Once You Are Certified
Becoming CCPIA-certified and attaining the proper training to back it up, sets the tone for your success. Next, you’ll need to work on your marketing — as with any business this can make or break your success. Our marketing resources share things every inspector should know but only the successful implement — leading them to accomplish great things such as more money per inspection project and less hassle. An inspection for a commercial property isn’t personal or emotional for the client because it is strictly a business transaction. Say good-bye to shmoozing agents and other clients. CCPIA offers step-by-step marketing help and guidance to its members.
