A Company on the Rise!

When you become an A-Pro® business owner, you gain instant, around-the-clock access to our staff of engineers, technicians, copywriters, designers, technical support personnel, computer programmers and information managers all of whom work with you to develop and grow your business.
We also save you time, money and effort by providing professional marketing materials like brochures, postcards and self-mailers, coupled with a solid marketing plan, so once again you can concentrate on inspections and not operational headaches.

Intensive Expert Training

A-Pro does far more than just put you into business for yourself. We offer a proprietary turn-key marketing blueprint that helps you grow your business beyond your expectations, crafted by one of the industry's most experienced and respected experts.

A-Pro's award-winning training program is conducted under the auspices of the Inspection Training Institute of San Antonio (ITI), and has been recognized by many boards across the U.S. as among the very best in the business.

The ITI program was devoloped by Professor William Springer, P.E., a licensed professional and national expert with more than 30 years of experience in the profession. Professor Springer is considered one of the top home inspection authorities in the country, and as such currently serves as Director of the International Society of Home Inspectors (ISHI).

The training begins at our Distant Learning Center, where you'll take nine accredited online courses to prepare you for the most complete home inspection examination in the country. Following the online courses, you'll fly into beautiful San Antonio or one of our other training satellite centers, where ITI will provide you with a comprehensive eight-day classroom and field training course at their newly remodeled campus, giving you an overall understanding of the home inspection process and earning you Certified Home Inspector (CHI)TM and Professional Home Inspector (PHI)TM designations. This is real-life, hands-on training that will teach you about entire inspection process, inside and outside, top to bottom.

Our inspectors are always telling us how rewarding our training program is – and how much they enjoy it!
