Four Point Inspections and Roof Survey Inspection Training (16 Hours)

All insurance carriers require inspections of their policies when the insured’s premises are greater than a certain age, typically ranging from 25 years and older. Insurance agents and carriers want accurate data, and as such Inspection Depot has developed their training program around the experiences of thousands of inspections to combine both the roof condition surveys with 4 point inspections, whereby inspectors will be taught the requirements of both inspections in one program.

Inspectors will learn how to analyze electrical systems, plumbing systems, roofing systems, and HVAC systems and reporting to ensure the protection of the policyholder and insurance carriers is maximized. This program will also review the typical underwriting guidelines such as those of Citizens Property Insurance, covering all aspects of building services and updates, roof verification forms, etc. Most importantly inspectors will be able to complete the roof survey inspection and a 4 point inspection.

The cost of this two day training program is a fraction of the inspection revenue you can generate.
