McKissock Addresses Top Issues in Home Inspection
Continuing Education Courses Cover Hot Topics for Home Inspectors

WARREN, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/12/12 -- McKissock, a leader in continuing education for home inspectors, has highlighted three courses focused on today's hot topics in the home inspection industry. McKissock is a trusted resource for state-specific, state-approved land surveyor, engineer and home inspector courses, regulation information and compliance.

"Our course catalogue is built to meet the needs of continuing education requirements, but certain courses stand out to professionals for their ability to address critical topics," says Annie Creek, Market Research and Compliance Specialist at McKissock.

According to industry leaders and the popularity of the courses, the following three topics are gaining importance in the field.

1. Radon Detection and Mitigation

This course will provide a basic look at radon for residential properties in order to give the home inspector a better understanding of how radon affects the air quality of a home. Home inspectors need to be aware of the dangers of radon, as well as what mitigation techniques should be used to protect homeowners. The course will define radon gas and explain where it comes from and review common mitigation methods.

2. Energy Efficiency

This home inspector course provides an in-depth look into energy usage, design and building for residential structures. Though home inspectors are not intended to be energy auditors, understanding energy efficiency and energy efficient construction can be very important for home inspectors. The course addresses how to look at multiple components of residential construction and discuss ways to make homes more energy efficient.

3. Reactive Chinese Drywall

This course discusses important aspects of home inspection associated with identification and remediation methods for reactive drywall manufactured in China and imported into the United States between 2001 and 2009. Commonly referred to as corrosive, reactive or defective Chinese drywall, its chemical composition has been shown to have negative effects on human health as well as metal components in the home. Not all drywall originating in China is defective, however. This course will provide recently revised guidelines for addressing the problem of defective drywall, as well as website resources that will keep you current on this rapidly evolving issue.
