Collection: Advanced Inspection


Ensure the sustainability of your key asset in our Advanced Inspection training. You'll begin by learning the fundamentals of buildings, covering both single-family homes and multifamily dwellings, as well as green building technology and energy conservation. With these under your belt, you'll then learn the building systems of a housing unit and problem signs that can help you detect possible failures early. The seminar ends with an exploration of how you and your department can increase agency performance through an understanding of how inspections affect residents, staff, the community, and overall PHA success.
