    Course Description- This is the approved Alabama Residential New Construction Course to receive your (RNC) Designation of your Alabama Home Inspectors License:

       This is an eight-hour course using Power Point slides. This course is an in-depth presentation of inspecting a newly constructed Alabama regional home including inspection scope and limitations, criteria for inspecting components, and inspection reporting requirements specific to the State of Alabama Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics.
      The course was developed by Mike Casey in conjunction with AHIO home inspector representatives. The course was in development over the past 2 years specifically for Alabama inspectors to use in residential new construction inspection education in the region of Alabama. After many hours of review and revision by a team of Alabama home inspectors and the Division of Construction Management, this state approved course is offered on the following dates listed below.

    Because of Covid, in person seating is very limited. The course will be offered twice in remote (Zoom) web training for the March 6th Mobile event and the April 10th Huntsville event, 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.

    Properly worn masks will be required at the in person meetings. Temperatures will be scanned at the door and anyone with a high temp will not be allowed to attend. The CDC considers a person to have a fever when he or she has a measured temperature of 100.4° F (38° C) or greater, or feels warm to the touch, or gives a history of feeling feverish. 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. 

    Fee for the class will be $250 for AHIO members and $350 for non-members. You have two options for joining AHIO - an annual $250 fee or $25 monthly fee. Registration will be Online Only with no same day walkup registration.
