    Hello everyone,
    I have joined this forum mainly for clearing my doubts and in getting suggestions regarding the education of my son. I am a retired Bank employee and a father of a 25-year-old. He completed his 12th grade with a good percentage of marks in the year 2007 and joined a degree course. Unfortunately, after 1 year, I met with an accident and was bed-ridden. Then my son was forced to discontinue his studies to take care of my business that I started after my retirement. Now he proved himself to be a very good businessman, and I also recovered from that accident. Since he is not qualified with a degree, he is now planning to do a distance education in building inspector certification course. I need suggestions about this course. Can someone give suggestions about it? Thanks in advance.

    Building Inspection is a certification/licensed position that is regulated by the state (in most places). So what that means is that it's going to be a little different everywhere you go. And what that means is that no one can really answer your question because we don't know where you live. Usually the equation looks like this: work experience + coursework + passing the exam = certification
    Coursework typically is no more than a year and can be done at your local community college. There are, of course, online options. You may want to take a peek at Penn Foster

    Whatever you do, be CERTAIN that the program you choose satisfies your state requirements. Here's an example,
