Professionally Trained Inspectors

The rapid growth of home inspections nationally over the past fifteen years has created the opportunity for lesser trained or inexperienced inspectors to enter the marketplace. This allows numerous eager critics the ability to expose those without proper qualifications or credentials. The BrickKicker has developed a proven strategy for training its inspectors and developing a curriculum supported by a dynamic classroom interaction, hands-on labs, field-tested exposure and an apprenticeship others can only mimic.
