Advanced Inspection

PURPOSE: Ensure the sustainability of your key asset — join us for our Advanced Inspection training. You'll begin by learning the fundamentals of buildings, covering both single family homes and multifamily dwellings, as well as green building technology and energy conservation. With these under your belt, you will then learn the building systems of a housing unit and problem signs that can help you detect possible failures early. The seminar ends with an exploration of how you and your department can increase agency performance through an understanding of how inspections affect residents, staff, the community, and overall PHA success.  

LEARNING OUTCOMES: Upon completion of the Advanced Inspection training, using current building sciences best practices and HUD guidance, you should understand:

  • How building construction affects the long-term viability of your portfolio, including:

    • Maintenance delivery
    • Modernization priorities
    • Inspection standards
  • An overview of building systems, which covers:
    • Site
    • Foundations: type, materials, and failures

    • Plumbing systems: materials; equipment (municipal and private) supply; and drain, waste, vent (DWV)
