when i came into this class i had over 15 years construction experience and thought i knew a lot about building houses but the amount of information i got from this class at least doubled my knowledge and understanding of how houses are built, what defects to look for given the age of the house and even location of the house. i highly highly advise anyone looking to get into home inspecting or looking to get there home inspected to use sga. and if you take the class they will even buy u pizza for lunch on the last day if u ask nicely.

They were out at the house within two days of my call and had my report back to me within a day! I highly recommend Trevor and his team at SGA!

This school was absolutely phenomenal. Steve has an immense knowledge of the home building industry from decades of experience, and Trevor's business and professional mindset complement perfectly. Between the two of them, they answered my questions with detail and patience, and went well above and beyond what a HI school is required to provide. The cost of an HI class is no joke, and Steve and Trevor really put effort in to make it worth the student's while. Can't say enough here, I am fortunate to have encountered SGA.

SGA performed a home inspection for us a few years ago and because they impressed us with their abilities and knowledge so much, we recently chose them again for another inspection. They detected some serious defects during their most previous inspection and saved us thousands. My family highly recommends SGA for all your inspection needs…And to the team, a huge THANK YOU!!

SGA Inspections is one of our "go-to" contacts when recommending home buyer's for home inspections. When hiring a home inspector, you want the inspector who's gonna find the bad stuff and tell you all they know about the potential bad stuff... sounds elementary but not every home inspector has the skills to do this! These guys do, and will take care of making sure you know what's the scoop with the place you are buying. Don't hesitate to give them a call and book your home inspection.

Steve has an extensive General contractors experience that allow him to teach us the backgrounds on many regulations of building.Trevor has great business background that helps us to use this new information to organize it and utilize it with business sense.What I really enjoyed is visiting trainers and inspectors who come in as teachers themselves but also successful practicing inspectors who take time out of their own busy schedule to help teach us to understand the latest information and what they do that make them successful.If you are looking for the... right school with the right instructor who have the right connections to board members, trainers, mentors then this is the right school for you!Hope this helps you decide where to enroll.read more

Trevor, was very respectful from the start. I knew that he was professional from our initial conversation (no pressure). He responded quickly for scheduling our home inspection, completed the home inspection, and provided a detailed report. During and after my review of the report, he was always available to answer any of my questions, even during after hours. (sorry Trevor I didn't realize the time).Two things are for sure, 1) I would recommend SGA Inspections Inc , and 2) enlist their services again.Leonard

Living in a development, we choose to get our home inspected for our upcoming warranty. We decided to use SGA Inspection Inc who came highly recommended by close friends. So glad we did. I thought we were just going to see the obvious nail pops but they pointed out things that we would have never known was an issue. Trevor is very professional, and knowledgeable about what he does. Broke down everything for us and gave us tips on what we could do for upkeep as well. What put this experience over the top for us was the inspection report we received. We were just expecting some typed out pdf review. I couldn't believe everything built into it. I definitely highly recommend them to anyone looking into getting your home inspected.

I want to give a huge shoutout and thanks to Steve and Trevor at SGA Inspection. I attended their home inspection training classes in November and just a few months later I’m licensed and starting my own business. These two are top shelf inspectors with a ton of knowledge and a way of teaching the skills needed to be a successful inspector that even me, a lifelong warehouse worker can understand and take with me. Could not have gotten here without these guys. For me this is a life changer and I’ll always be thankful I chose SGA. Thanks fellas

SGA Inspection delivers excellent home inspections and inspector training. If you are looking for a home inspection, you can't go wrong with these guys...They will make sure you are taken care of and will let you know what you are getting yourself into with buying a house. They are very good at what they do.As for the inspector training they offer, they focus on giving you the knowledge for passing the exam, but they go above and beyond that by giving tips and pointers for starting your business from the tools, to business practices, and report writing. They train their students to do the job right and know what to look for. As a student in their class, I went in knowing next to nothing, and by the end of the class, I pulled an 85% on their the... Final practice exam. I kept studying and taking practice tests for about a month after the class until I scored 100% on the individual tests, and until I was scoring above 90% on the randomized Final practice exam. Then I went in and passed the State License exam. It is not a walk in the park, there is a lot to know, so don't be afraid to ask questions, and keep studying and learning. The State Exam has a lot of tricky questions, but this class gives you a solid home inspector foundation upon which to launch your career.read more

I decided to make a career change at 40, and spent a number of months thinking about what the next chapter of life would look like. I was motivated to become a GC, to help people transform their homes, so it could be a sanctuary and not a source of stress. But the idea of doing building inspection came up again and again. Selfishly the turn around is quick so it would help with cashflow while working on larger construction projects, but even looking at it through the lens of being client focused, how great would it be to help people avoid getting trapped in a house that had way more problems than they realized.I got excited about becoming a building inspector, but initially was a little annoyed there are a lot of hoops to jump through in WA... compared to other states. Now, having completed the class with Steve and Trevor I'm so grateful for the requirement for in class training and that I picked this school. I've heard some not great stories about the other training opportunities, a lot of which just train to the book. This really was where SGA stands out, first training for the test was done in a great way with lots of real world examples so I have a real feeling of preparedness, but what was more important in the end was how much effort Steve & Trevor put in to making sure we had the tools to become good inspectors. It becomes apparent pretty quick that passing the test is just the first baby step. Through the course we had regular breaks from the text to listen to guest speakers, some with industry knowledge but also some who served more as a business resource, as many of us are going to go on to be owner/operators.I came over from Spokane for the class, it was well worth the time, and if I grow my team in the future and need to get someone trained up I'll be sending them over to SGA Inspection School to have the same quick launch experience I had.read more

I did my research and chose these guys after carefully considering my options and now, after nearly complete their course, I am happy with my decision. These are some of the benefits you will receive from attending their program.1) they submerse you in the material you need to know to pass the exam;2) they’re practitioners that teach using real-world experience; and lastly,3) they prepare you for the day-to-day, operations side of the business.The primary teacher, Steve, has decades of experience in construction and brings that experience into teaching the material. The guy is an encyclopedia of information. He is very good at relating the material you are learning to real world situations, which mades difficult to understand subject much... easier. The other teacher, Trevor, came into Home Inspecting without a construction background; however, with nearly 1,000 inspections under his belt, Trevor brings a necessary element to the program. He’s really good a simplifying the material in an easy-to-understand way and teaching the practical side of the business. My favorite Trevor saying, “if it doesn’t look right it probably isn’t.”If you are on the fence, I suggest giving them a call and asking them questions. They are super professional, and it’s easy to get along with them.On a side note, STUDY the material they assign prior to class. You're required to know an insane amount of material to pass the State exam.read more

In regards to the inspector training, Steve is has wealth of construction knowledge that only comes from someone who has been in the field for decades and tackled every part of the construction process hands on. Trevor has excellent insights into the inspection business and does a great job of showing how to efficiently and effectively inspect a home from top to bottom, inside and out. Their course was easy to follow, and the guest speakers they brought in really helped cement the teaching and motivated you to succeed in this field.

The home inspector school that Steve and Trevor teach is fantastic! In the classroom they provide you with the knowledge and curriculum that is needed to pass the state examination. Not only are they helpful with exam prep work, they stand by their students after class and help answer any questions along the way. Money well spent to say the least, thank you guys!

We had a home inspection done by SGA and they were fantastic: Professional, explained everything, gave me a blow by blow, recommendations, and finally an online comprehensive report to send to the seller. Now that we own the house we use the report to prioritize the items that are left to be fixed. When we buy another house they will be our first and top choice!

Steve and Trevor are highly knowledgeable and have a passion for doing things correctly and ethically. Highly recommend.

Steve and Trevor did a phenomenal job of preparing me to pass the state exam. They kept class interesting a fun while covering all the things you need to know to be a successful home inspector. They work with the most professionalism and integrity. Most of all Steve and Trevor are very gracious with their time, and are willing to listen and help with anything you need. Also. They ALWAYS answer back with your questions. If you are serious about becoming a home inspector this is the class for you. The best in the state!!

I have been in construction for 28 years and have been interested in becoming a Home Inspector the last few years, I looked at the different schools out there and choose Washington Home Inspector Training, I definitely made the right decision. Steve and Trevor are passionate about the home inspector trade. The course work is very good and I learned a lot of things. I would say the best thing about the class is their willingness to help you succeed, they are happy to answer questions . Thank you very much!

After 30 years in the construction business, I decided I wanted to start going in a different direction. After much research I decided on Washington Home Inspector Training. I am so glad I did. Steve and Trevor do an incredible job of relaying the information needed to not just pass the test, but to have a strong foundation to build the business. The field training was thorough and detailed. Making the decision to become an inspector takes a commitment, Steve and Trevor respect that. I would highly recommend their course to anyone considering becoming an Inspector.

I took this course in Feb, 2016. It was recommended by a friend to NOT attend the course he had gone to, and so we looked around and ended up finding Steve and Trevor. The price was reasonable, and they were working with InterNACHI and HomeGauge as part of their course. The class was full at the time, but Steve made an exception for me and I was able to attend - very much appreciated! Wow, did I make the right choice.Steve is an encyclopedia of experience and knowledge on all things Home Inspection. He is best at relating information to students coming into the class with backgrounds and experience in residential housing. Trevor, while also extremely proficient, has been through the process you are now considering. He is most adept at... breaking information down to its simplest form so that even the most inexperienced of student will be able to absorb the required information and complete the course with the knowledge, tools, and confidence they need to attain certification, and find success. They complement each other very well, and my positive experience was greatly benefited by what the both brought to the course.Both Trevor and Steve were very accommodating to ensure I received sufficient, in-home inspection experience while shadowing their inspections. During the class, they were there bright and early, and stayed until I wanted to leave. They were always available, and have been since, for questions, and followed up with me at times to see how my progress was going with my business. If becoming a Certified Home Inspector is your goal, there really is not a better class to give you the best opportunity to achieve that goal.read more

SGA Inspection Services & Training LLC. is very professional in every aspect. From day one as a student I have been learning at a fast pace. Classroom time is a good balance of personal study, and Instructor group training. Small class sizes (5-8 students) contributes to personal one on one time with either Instructor. The balance of Steves' long time exper (over 30 years in the construction industry), mixed with Trevors' youthful enthusiasm & technical savviness, brings an overall thoroughness that cannot be beat.

SGAInspections was a fantastic find. Steve & Trevor do a tremendous job at inundating the student in all the info needed to become a great home inspector. Included in the coarse is the exposure to the software products used by inspectors as well. Teaching each student the process of going out to the home site, executing the inspection and then finishing the report for the consumer. They have been a great resource for me as I launch this new venture. Thanks Guys.... Mike

I recently attended Washington Home Inspector Training and was thoroughly impressed from start to finish. WHIT's facility was comfortable and I was impressed by use of multimedia technology to present course material. Syllabus was in line with national home inspector standards and tailored to passing the WA state inspector test. They nicely balanced coursework and practical inspection content. I enjoyed the small class size that allowed for more than adequate personal attention.I have no reservations about recommending Washington Home Inspector Training's course to any prospective student. Without attending this course I highly doubt I would have been as prepared to successfully pass the state exam let alone feel as confident to start my own... inspecting business.read more

After researching several companies online that provide home Inspection training, including phone conversations with several people who have attended the other vendors for training, it was obvious SGA was the right choice. Steve and Trevor have developed a first class training experience. From the very first inquiry about the training to the completion of the class, there has been no doubt in my mind I made the right choice. SGA training is set up in an actual classroom not some random rented motel room. SGA instructors are present every minute of your training to assist you. If you are looking to start a buisness or are just thinking about it, I have no doubt after talking to Steve or Trevor you will be confident they are ready to assist you with... building your future as an Certified Licensed Home Inspectorread more

SGA Inspection Services offers a practical, hands-on training program to make sure every student receives the education they need. Steve and Trevor are an open book. They are fun, but quickly get down to business making sure you are adequately prepared for the state exam. If you follow their instruction, you will succeed. On a scale of 1 to 10, these guys get a “10”. I highly recommend SGA to anyone who is serious about learning the business.

Steve and Trevor were easy to work with and translated their own experiences to us students in a clear and easy way to understand. The class not only included the knowledge base required by Washington state but also other facets of the home inspection business like marketing, equipment etc. The schedule worked well with my schedule.

Steve and Trevor did an amazing job on the inspection. They walked us through everything, answered all the questions we had, pointed out all the little things I would never have thought to look for, and gave us some helpful tips for fixing things. Their report was delivered promptly the next day and was extremely thorough. Unfortunately their inspection revealed several major issues that was not apparent to the untrained eye. We did not get the house because of it and I would consider their fee money well spent to avoid a moneypit. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking to have an inspection.

I would highly recommend Steve and company to anyone needing a qualified inspector. His professionalism, contracting experience, timeliness, and complete documentation of all his findings went above and beyond our expectations. Within minutes he was doing a full roof and attic inspection, while the entire foundation structure was also documented and photographed.We ended up walking from the property he inspected for us. Thank you Steve for saving us thousands upon thousands of dollars.We will definitely be using your services again!
