Training Specialists

books with open pages

You may order text books from whoever you like.  Francis Tuttle Rockwell Campus, stocks these resources.  You are responsible for obtaining the text books prior to beginning this course.  You may contact Francis Tuttle directly to obtain the publications or order through the below listed links.

1.  Principles of Home Inspection Systems and Standards 3d Edition.

 

This publication is the central publication for completion of this course.  (Dearborn)

 

2.  Code Check, An Illustrated Guide to Building a Safe House.

This publication will provide you the information on what you will be inspecting new homes.  This should be considered the central document from which you will look at any other than new property. Why this publication?  Many older structures will or may have had modifications after being occupied.  Your focus, in part, should be on the modifications to the property since the completion.  The first argument that you will come across is that the particular inspected system was installed to code at the time of initial construction.  This is commonly referred to as the "Grandfather" clause.  There is no such term.  Codes and specifications are written to incorporate new materials, workmanship and safety.  Your focus is that the item is still safely installed.

 

The following publications are OPTIONAL
