Published: Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2013 4:44 p.m. CDT

CRYSTAL LAKE – McHenry County College is offering a home inspection pre-licensing course.

This course, approved by the Office of Banks and Real Estate, takes place from 6 to 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from Sept. 10 to Nov. 21 in room A112 at the college, 8900 Route 14, Crystal Lake.

The 60-hour training will prepare students for the state home inspector licensing examination. The instructor will cover topics including exteriors, electrical systems, heating and many other areas related to home inspections.

Many home inspectors use computer software and digital cameras to generate reports, so some computer skills may be helpful, but are not required.

Other aspects of the home inspection business, including marketing and business start-up, also are covered in the class.

The cost is $895, which includes books and materials. For information, contact Ruth Kormanak at 815-479-7879 or To register, call 815-455-8588. The course ID is URE U04-001.
