Seneca College, in partnership with Carson Dunlop and Associates and in cooperation with the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors (OAHI), is offering a ten-subject Home Inspection program that incorporates the Standards of Practice of ASHI/CAHPI (American Society of Home Inspectors/Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors). The program is based on a curriculum developed by ASHI in conjunction with Columbia Assessment Services Inc., because of their Role Delineation Study of the home inspection profession.

Students will learn the systems and components of a house including roofing, structure, electrical, heating, air conditioning/heat pumps, plumbing, exterior, insulation, and the interior. The ten subjects in this certificate have been organized to address each of these, as well as to provide students with the communication skills and knowledge of professional practice required to be successful in this growing industry. The emphasis of this certificate is on very practical knowledge of the performance of the systems and components of a house, not on theory.

The curriculum has been thoughtfully organized into subjects that describe the materials used in the construction of each house system and how they are assembled. Content covers what may go wrong as well as the causes and the implications of problems that result. The program gives students clear directions concerning what to look for during an inspection: signs of non-performance due to old age, deferred maintenance, weather damage, and poor workmanship. It is this aspect of the program that distinguishes it from the knowledge of contractors or other building professionals.

Successful completion of this program fulfills the academic entrance requirements of the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors (OAHI) except for the Defect Recognition and Reporting Subject, which must be taken through the OAHI directly – www.oahi.com. (NOTE: OAHI requires that students receive a minimum of 70% in each course to qualify for their certification.)

I am going back to get my BSN and I found the experience one of my best in life. Everybody was so helpful actually going out of their way to help me with OSAP and applying for the correct courses. Everybody from continuing education to the finance department went over and beyond their duties. They are organized and the steps are easy to follow. I am so grateful to have had this opportunity in my life to go back and do this. I am almost 50 years old and I thought I would get treated badly but it was the opposite. Thank you Sarah, Jeremy and everyone who went out of their way to help me with this journey. I recommend St Clair to everyone who wants to broaden their future!!

I’m currently in my 2nd year of the business-HR program and I must says that I’m loving it so far. Professors are one of the best and they really care about their students. They are always there to help you when needed. Classes are well maintained and the teaching standard is very high. College campus has a great food court with Halal shawarma, Tim’s, Griffs, a huge computer lab that can be accessed by the students for free, a newly opened gaming center and much more! All the staff are very supportive. I so far haven’t regretted coming to St Clair.

The college is very strict on taking a retest or submitting an assignment past due which is excellent. That’s how it’s supposed to be and a lot of students hate when they aren’t allowed to submit their assignment past it’s due date.
