Each question is similar to one that might appear on the National Home Inspector Examination; A brave audience member will offer an answer to a question. Then, we will discuss the answer to help you understand it. Many answers are followed by illustrations and/or pictures to help you visualize and remember the concepts. This is repeated until the game is over. Experienced inspectors will benefit from attending Inspection Quiz too. We will cover some topics you have forgotten or, perhaps, that you were never taught. *Pending NCHILB approval
