Program Details

North American Trades Schools’ Home Inspection Diploma is a 26 week program run in partnership with Carson Dunlop and Associates and in cooperation with the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors (OAHI).

The Carson Dunlop and Associates program is recognized and recommended by the Canadian Association of Home & Property Inspectors (CAHPI) in all provinces. The NATS Home Inspection diploma also meets the Professional Home/Property Inspector Occupational Standards developed by the Canadian Home Inspectors and Building Officials Steering Committee for National Standards (CHIBO).


What Does the Home Inspection Program Cover?

The systems and components of a house include roofing, structure, electrical, heating, air conditioning/heat pumps, plumbing, exterior, insulation and the interior. The Home Inspection diploma courses are organized to address these, as well as provide students the communications skills and knowledge of professional practice required to be successful in this growing industry.

Curriculum has been organized into courses that describe the materials used in the construction of each house system and how they are assembled. Content covers what may go wrong as well as the causes and the implications of problems that result.

Our Home Inspection diploma gives you clear direction concerning what to look for during an inspection: signs of non-performance due to old age, deferred maintenance, weather damage, and poor workmanship. It is this aspect of the program that distinguishes it from the knowledge of contractors or other building professionals.
