Home Inspection License

Home Inspection License

All our Home Inspection License sessions are taught by actual professionals not just an instructor without home inspection experience. This is why Brooklyn Real Estate Institute is the only school in Brooklyn that is able to offer Module 5.

All modules are given continuously year-round. For example, when Module 5 is finished, Module 1 is given shortly thereafter and so on. Also, make-up dates are available at the end of each module if you cannot attend each session.
