The course will be offered twice in remote (Zoom) web training for the March 6th Mobile event and the April 10th Huntsville event, during emergency COVID rules, then it will be an in class only course going forward, depending on COVID requirements.
The sign up on the AHIO website will go live on Tuesday (01/26/2021) for the Birmingham event. AHIO will notify their members on Sunday night (01/24/2021) and they will have the first opportunity to register. We will ask the State to list the event on their website January 29th or later and send out an info email to licensees for all State Licensed Home Inspectors to have the opportunity. Keep in mind, there is a 50 seat limit because of COVID, so the class will likely fill up quickly. We are also keeping a watch on any COVID conditions, recommendations or requirements by the State or CDC that might require changes for the courses for the health and safety of participants. If you register and then test positive or are exposed to COVID and can not attend, you will receive a refund.

Two other classes, also with limted in person registration are planned for Mobile and Huntsville. Both of these classes will also have a Zoom option for more availability.
