"What is Green?" This course offers an in-depth overview of what green building is and how the term relates to the home inspector. You will be introduced to materials and systems the home inspector may see in the next 1-3 years during a property inspection, learn what the built structure has to do with global warming concerns, and how renewable energy and resources technologies will change the way homes use renewable energy. Energy efficiency is discussed and what the home inspector can do to assist homeowners and home buyers in making informed decisions on future renovations considering these issues. Federal tax incentives and resources are reviewed so students can share this information with their client base.
This course offers an excellent overview of what home inspectors may see as they inspect new types of renovations coming in the next 3-5 years. The course will review the energy rating and certification process and qualify the home inspectors’ role as these new entries enter the marketplace.
