I am feeling rather excited about the educational lineup at this year’s 2017 OAHI/CAHPI-ON Educational Conference.

This year we have decided to do something different: we have given a rating to each of the sessions depending on the level of knowledge of the intended audience.

We have several “Freshman” courses, as well as many sessions geared more for the “Advanced” and some more “General.”

While all sessions can be beneficial to all attendees:

  • Freshman courses are intended for those in their first few years of being a home inspector.
  • The General sessions are beneficial and good solid information for everyone.
  • The Advanced sessions are mainly intended for the seasoned RHI but can still be a benefit for all.

There are also some sessions that are reviews of the ongoing legislation regarding the home inspection industry that will eventually lead to licensing of home inspectors.

This year we also have two sessions all about report writing, be sure to attend the ones that are the best fit for you.

Remember, Education is the Key to your continued success in helping your clients make an informed decision.

Please keep monitoring the OAHI website’s conference page and Facebook for the session schedule.

Register now to take advantage of the Early Bird pricing.

I look forward to seeing everyone at the conference and at the AGM on March 4, remember you have a voice and the AGM is a great place to use it and to stay in touch with what is going on at OAHI.
