EMI: Asbestos Building Inspector


Prepare for your Building Inspector License

What You’ll Learn

Federal Regulations mandate asbestos inspections in all areas of structures that will be affected by renovation or demolition. These inspections must be performed by an accredited building inspector, even in commercial and industrial facilities. In addition, K-12 schools must regularly use accredited inspectors to re-inspect their buildings.

The Institute's Asbestos Building Inspector Initial training not only meets Indiana, Illinois, and federal accreditation requirements, it also provides participants with practical help and materials to carry out this task.

In addition to completing the course and scoring at least 70% on the course exam, you must meet the individual state requirements to receive a state license. This generally involves completing the state application, paying a fee, and meeting the experience/education requirements. For example, in Indiana, inspectors must have a high school diploma or a GED certificate. Our courses are accepted for licensing in Indiana, Illinois and in states requiring only EPA approval, such as Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio.

Persons completing the inspector initial course are eligible for further training as Asbestos Management Planners.
