|Home Inspection Basics

The primary reason for a home inspection is to identity defects in the physical condition of the property. These defects can include problems in the plumbing system, heating/cooling systems, electrical systems, structural systems, roofing, siding, windows, and many other items.
This course will help you assist your clients in choosing the right type of inspection needed. It will also provide the necessary resources to help buyers obtain complete information concerning the physical condition of the property they are purchasing.

Continuing Education Requirements
Licensees are required to complete 20 hours of approved continuing education courses for each two-year license period (January 1 of odd-numbered years through December 31 of even-numbered years), also referred to as the licensing biennium.
Licensees intending to renew their license on an active status by the renewal deadline of November 30 (even-numbered years) must complete 20 hours of approved continuing education courses during the biennium. The required continuing education hours include the commission designated core courses, which are offered in a two-part format (Core A and Core B), and the remaining courses as elective credit hours. Visit the Hawaii Real Estate Commission website for more information about continuing education requirements.
Continuing Ed Express submits course completion information to the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs. Licensees will receive certificates marked “elective” for elective courses and “core” for core courses after they complete each course.
BEFORE you purchase a course, check your continuing education history on the Hawaii Online Real Estate Continuing Education website to make sure you can receive continuing education credit for each course. According to Hawaii Administrative Rules, S 16-99-95 Duplicate continuing education hours: “Except as provided by the commission or by this subchapter, a licensee shall not take a continuing education course for which the licensee has already received a certificate within two consecutive biennia.”
