Why Hire A WAHI Inspector?
WAHI Mission Statement
Upcoming Events & Chapter Meetings
The BEST in Continuing Education
The WAHI Education Committee puts forth great effort to provide the very best in continuing education at our biannual seminars (spring and fall) and monthly Chapter meetings (5 around the state). Secretary David Ross of the Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS), the governing agency in Wisconsin for the home inspection industry, has recognized WAHI as a leader in the arena of education providers for home inspectors in the State. All of our course offerings include continuing education credit which is accepted by the State of Wisconsin and the American Society of Home Inspectors.
In March of 2016 we held our 2-day Education House and Training Seminar in Milwaukee.
Our Education House is an all-day, hands-on training event held in an area home. In the morning, we offer home inspectors from around the state an opportunity to inspect the home and present their findings to a peer review panel. This is an outstanding program for home inspectors to “test” themselves to make sure they are addressing the State Standards of Practice when working with their customers. In the afternoon, we position an array of experts in various locations throughout the home and attendees do circuit training of those areas.
The Training Seminar is an all-day classroom event consisting of 3-4 National and local speakers covering a variety of topics, all pertaining to the home inspection industry. In addition to the training, we have many exhibitors sharing information on their products and services.What you will see in the video below is a demonstration of a chimney fire conducted at our Spring 2016 Education House in Oak Creek, WI. This demo was performed with the advance permission of the Oak Creek Fire Department. The fuel used to coat the flue tiles is an accurate representation of real soot with similar fuel burning characteristics. In addition to the intense flames that are visible and the resulting flue tile damage, note how quickly the fire moves up the flue. What we hope you take away from this video is the understanding of how easy it is to have flue tile damage after a chimney fire, as well as, the importance of fireplace and chimney maintenance.
