CREATED by home inspectors for home inspectors



Our Home Inspection Training Program is based on our 42 years of field experience. We have trained thousands of home inspectors and we use the Program to train our own inspectors. We have 16 home inspectors and six commercial inspectors.

Starting a new career is a big step.

But you don’t have to walk alone.

We get it. At Carson Dunlop, we’ve walked a lot of miles in your shoes. We aren’t just training providers—we’re home inspectors. Back when we started in 1978, inspections were rare. We had to convince buyers, sellers and real estate agents that we could help them. Today, we have 17 inspectors in our company, and have trained thousands across North America. You benefit from our 42 years of field experience and delivery of more than 50,000 courses..
