Home Inspection School of New Jersey Hands - On Workshops, Mentoring and Training
After weighing my other options in the area I chose to enroll in The Home Inspection School of New Jersey (THISNJ) and I could not be happier with my decision. Chanin and Joe go above and beyond for each and every one of their students. They take you from Chapter 1 all the way to how to answer phone calls and book your first inspection. They excel at making you feel welcome, prepared and comfortable with the material. They offer up their personal time if you need additional help with a subject or just want to get a quick review in before a test. If you are looking to become a home inspector (whether you have previous experience or have never picked up a hammer) this is the school for you!
If you're looking for a school to teach you about the home inspection profession look no further. As a teacher myself I appreciate a well laid out curriculum and good resources, this school has both (in a time when many schools have neither). The atmosphere of this school is very comfortable. Class sizes are kept small so you don't feel weird asking questions....and trust me you'll have questions. This is a lot of material to cover in the time allotted, but Joe is knowledgeable and explains things in a way that make it easy to understand. Chanin and Joe also help you with the logistics of how to setup your tests and mentoring hours for licensure, you don't feel like you are left to just fend for yourself even after the classes have concluded. There are many home inspection schools in Nj, but none quite like this one.

After losing my job this year I decided it was time for a career change and decided to go into the field of Home Inspections. After alot of research into Home Inspection training throughout NJ , I found The Home Inspection School of NJ. After making several phone calls, and comparing what all the schools had to offer, I decided to attend the fall semester. I am glad I did. The class size is perfect, the curriculum is well laid out, and they supply you with all the materials needed to be successful. ( All the other schools I looked into were class instruction only, no materials or books, no ongoing support ). Joe was a great instructor, and really knows his stuff. He is very knowledgeable with the material, and answers all your questions. They not only teach you what you need to know to be successful in obtaining your license, but also prepare you with all the information on how to start your business, how to use the report writing software programs, how to obtain additional licenses, report writing skills, test preparation.... the list goes on and on. As far as the administrative side, Chanin is exceptional. She answered all my questions and provided constant support and information when I needed it. Not only was it a great decision and experience for me, they have a passion for what they do and it shows every time you step into the classroom. If you are looking for a Home Inspection school in NJ, look no further. I really enjoyed the course and feel I am totally prepared to meet my goals in the future and highly recommend them for all your inspection training and needs.
As an individual who was changing careers I wanted to make sure that I was very diligent and smart in my decision-making process when choosing a home inspection school. From day one of the course, I was supplied with all of the necessary materials, such as a stack of informative texts, to help me to be successful in the class. After just a few short weeks, Joe and my fellow classmates came to feel like family to me. It was a small group, which was optimal for personalized learning. Joe covered countless topics pertaining to the home inspection process, but did so in a straightforward and easy-to-understand manner, citing personal experiences, stories, and tips along the way. We shared a lot of laughs through the semester, making the long 3- to 7-hour classes much more bearable and enjoyable. He never hesitated to answer my many questions, and more importantly, never made me feel uncomfortable when I asked them. In addition to a plethora of information in the course, Joe also helped us to prepare for our careers with practical applications, such as introducing us to a home inspection software program and showing us the ropes by having us dive into the field, shadowing Joe on his jobs. In fact, from my first experience in my home inspection mentorship with Joe, he had me inspect multiple facets of homes and draw up sample home inspection reports. This really allowed me to get hands-on training, which is invaluable towards learning the ropes of the field. I truly believe that my education in the class and the mentoring experience will enable me to pass my state licensing exam, open my own home inspection business, and most importantly, excel in the field, as a knowledgeable and reputable inspector. If I have any uncertainties in my future endeavors, or if I hit any roadblocks, I have no doubt that Joe would gladly help me through them or answer any questions that I have. Joe is the kind of guy who will bend over backwards to help you succeed. I am so glad that I made the decision to enroll in the Home Inspection School of New Jersey. I would highly recommend this program to any aspiring home inspector.
