Pest CertificationThe Pest Inspection Course from Professional Home Inspection Institute will teach you everything you need to know to begin offering pest inspections to your clients as a business or as an addon to a list of services you already offer clients (like home inspection, mold inspection, radon measurement, etc).
The course is interactive and can be taken both online and from the CD-ROMs that we send to you in the mail. The interactive Pest Inspection Course contains text, audio, video, images, diagrams, and flashcards to help you learn the material in the course and memorize important information that you will need to know both to pass the certification exams and in your work as a pest inspector.
As you move through the course, you will take lesson quizzes to verify that you have completed each lesson and at the end of the course there is a final exam which you take online. All the quizzes and exams are done online and your answers and scores are submitted electronically so there is no need to mail lesson tests back and forth or be stuck waiting to find out the results of your last test.
After you have passed all the quizzes and the exam, you can generate your certificate. This certificate is all you need in most states to show clients, realtors, banks, mortgage companies, and other lendors that you are certified to do pest inspections. Some states also require pest inspectors to take pesticide application training as well. You can click on the link below for state licensing information and you are also encouraged to check with your state pest control board for more information about the specific licensing requirements in your state.
