Mike Casey with Casey & Associates will be with us all day Saturday presenting on the following topics:

Manufactured Home Inspections: This two-hour course is focused to provide both experienced and new home inspectors a general overview of manufactured housing, what it is, and why we have it, and suggested protocols for inspecting a manufactured home.

Floor and Roof Truss Inspections: This two-hour session will cover the inspection of floor and roof trusses exclusively. We will discuss identifying components, load paths, consensus references, truss drawings and modalities and evidences of failures and site installations. This session will review a typical installation of modern open web floor and roof trusses, as well as I-Joists. We will cover components, truss drawings, boring, point loads, modifications and piggy-back trusses. This course is intended for home inspectors who want an in depth understanding of both how to identify and report deficiencies in and around floor and roof trusses and why they are deficient.

Transitioning to Expert Witness Work: This two-hour course introduces participants to the practice of claims and expert consulting, including assignment scope and limitations, criteria for accepting, typical documents and reporting requirements.

Then on Sunday, we welcome Paul Zak with America’s Call Center who will give a presentation on Being Today’s Great Inspection Company.

Plus, optional additional courses and credits planned for Friday, December 8 for those wishing to earn all 14 renewal credits for their HI license or just wanting refreshers.
