    School Overview

    American Home Inspectors Training Institute emerged in 1993 in order to fill the increasing demand for highly qualified home inspectors. The Institute began when Roy Newcomer’s family business, Newcomer’s Home Inspection Service, continued to expand, requiring skilled and experienced inspectors. Roy, along with his son Scott, founded AHIT and as the family home inspection franchise, Newcomer’s of America Prodiverty Inspection Service, continued to thrive, so too, did AHIT. 

    Today, the private, for-profit American Home Inspectors Training Institute prepares students for careers in their own start-up home inspection business. Additionally, instruction prepares students for the National Home Inspectors Exam. Students can complete the program at one of many locations in the United States and Canada, or opt to enroll in the online program for added convenience. 

    Instruction features hands-on experience as students complete actual home inspections and learn successful marketing skills. In addition, AHIT provides ongoing support to graduates, and upon successful completion of the training, students can display the “AHIT Certified” logo on their promotional materials. Students can also access important information, including state licensing requirements at AHIT.
