Commercial Property Inspection Training in Boulder, CO

Business Practices Session

The business practices session will teach inspectors how to start and operate a commercial property inspection business. Students will walk away with practical knowledge to use in the field and sample agreements, proposals, reports, and other business documents. The main topics covered include the ComSOP, setting a fee schedule, writing proposals, narrating reports, marketing for commercial property inspections, landing repeat business, and other insider tips to start landing outrageously profitable jobs.

Systems and Components Sessions

The systems and components sessions provide a general overview of technical information specific to commercial buildings. It reviews several systems outlined in Section 6 Walk-Through Survey of the ComSOP that should be evaluated during an inspection, including roofing, exterior, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, life safety, and cooking areas. Students will learn how to take inventory of building systems and components, identify common deficiencies, and determine if a specialty consultant is needed for a more in-depth assessment.

Mock Inspection of Commercial Building

The class will perform a mock inspection in adherence to the ComSOP. This exercise provides hands-on experience and allows students to ask the instructor about actual items they will come across in the field. The mock inspection is scheduled for the second half of the last day of the class.
