At the end of class, we will arrange for you to take the FABI exam which is accepted by the State in lieu of the NHIE. This exam is based on the book "Principles of Home Inspection Systems & Standards" (3rd edition). We will provide this book for you at the beginning of class.

At the end of the course, we will have a celebration party where we encourage you to bring your spouse or significant other. We will invite nearby established business owners to attend also so there is a great opportunity to live interview for potential employment opportunities!
