Top-notch training puts you
at the head of the class
While all franchise companies provide some training, HouseMaster’s home inspection business training programs are truly in a class of their own. We believe education is critical to customer satisfaction, quality of life, and business growth. HouseMaster is dedicated to providing superior training in all aspects of business operations for all franchisees and their staffs.
Once all the franchise paperwork is finalized we get rolling! As part of your home inspection training, you will be given access to the HouseMaster® InfoEx (our advanced intranet) where you will be introduced to Right Track – an interactive “to do” list that helps step you through the process of setting up your business. You will also take our home inspection training primer on-line "Introduction to Home Inspections" even before you begin the formal classroom training sessions.
Operations and Marketing Training
You and your staff are provided with specialized training on the HouseMaster Market Advantages, office software, telephone marketing, HouseMaster’s 12-month marketing plan, risk management, and business management topics such as financial planning, budgets, and monthly reporting.
Marketing is the name of the game and HouseMaster spares no expense in developing your sales skills. To ensure you are ready to market your services, you will participate in lecture and role-playing sessions.
These sessions will give you the foundation needed to implement the HouseMaster Sales Strategy. No other home inspection franchise system makes such a commitment to your success.
A substantial part of the HouseMaster training program is reserved for the all-important Home Inspection Training Technical Program. HouseMaster is the only franchise company to offer home inspection training through a state-approved vocational school - The National Institute of Building Inspectors® (NIBI®).
The HouseMaster Technical Staff established the National Institute of Building Inspectors in 1986 to provide the finest technical training and annual re-certification testing for HouseMaster inspectors. Since then, NIBI has become known as a premier training provider for the home inspection industry.
Through NIBI courses, franchisees are able to complete some or all of the locally required pre-licensure or continuing education requirements. NIBI courses provide the learning needed to help you satisfactorily complete the NIBI Certification exam and other home inspector exams required for licensure.
As part of your HouseMaster franchise, NIBI classroom training is provided FREE; and there are no limits to how many trainees you may send. This is just one of the many ways we support your growth to become a multi-inspector operation.
The Learning Never Ends
To truly master the skills needed for success, your learning continues even after you complete initial training. With HouseMaster, you will have the opportunity to log on to "webinars" or participate in a conference call with other HouseMaster franchisees on numerous topics to help reinforce what you have learned and to be introduced to additional issues appropriate for your stage of development.
Our technical team also posts bulletins and updates on anything notable going on in the industry to help keep you informed and current. Training refreshers and technical sessions are also offered at the HouseMaster Annual Conference and regional meetings.
Training DVDs Reinforce Skills
The NIBI Inspection Training DVD introduced in 2006 is a one of a kind instructional DVD focusing on the overall inspection process and the very vital area of Defect Recognition. The DVD will help prospective inspectors understand the true responsibilities of a home inspector before investing in training. The DVD is also an excellent refresher for existing staff.
Distance Learning: NIBI® Online Campus
NIBI is one of the few inspector training organizations to provide a comprehensive distance learning program. NIBI's Online Learning Program is ideal for introductory training or re-training - or any time your inspector staff cannot take advantage of classroom training sessions. This exclusive training option gives you access to a quality learning experience wherever you have Internet access.
