Parallel Inspections (with Reporting Form)

ITA is the ONLY school in Arizona to be licensed by the Arizona State Board of Postsecondary Education to provide Parallel Inspection Training in Arizona.

Before you can become a certified home inspector in the State of Arizona, you must complete the required parallel inspections with a licensed home inspector. ITA will coordinate with participating inspection companies throughout the valley to help you fulfill this valuable training.

Field training consists of actual home inspections. Up to four students may attend with one inspector. The student will observe the assessment of all the various visible and accessible systems and components in the home and its exterior. They will also have the opportunity to observe how the inspector interacts with the clients, sellers, and real estate agents and how information about the home is conveyed to them through the inspection report.

The students will be required to fill out their inspection reports. ITA will provide you with a reporting form for your parallel inspections if you do not have reporting software.

Even if your state does not require parallel inspections for licensing, time spent on field inspections can significantly enhance a student’s understanding of the whole process.

ITA Students:

$75 Per Inspection (If all 30 parallels are conducted with ITA) – $2250 Total (Save $1500!)

$100 Per Inspection (If all parallels ARE NOT conducted with ITA) 

Non ITA Students:

$125 Per Inspection

LEAD Renovation, Repair, and Painting - For Contractors!

1 Day – 8 Hours

$195

Everyday renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can harm adults and children. To protect against this risk, on April 22, 2008, EPA issued a rule requiring the use of lead-safe practices and other actions to prevent lead poisoning. Under the law, beginning April 22, 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, childcare facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified. They must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.

The US EPA approved our LEAD training course for certification purposes under Section 402 of TSCA.
