Online CE Class Information – Other Aspects of Heating

Other Aspects of Heating v1.0

Thanks for your interest in this 10-hour online CE class covering other aspects of heating not covered in the gas furnace class. In this class we will look at fireplaces and chimneys as well as different types of electric heating. While we won’t find these systems in every house that we inspect, having a working knowledge of these systems is important for when we do come across them while performing inspections.

Please note that this course was developed and produced by Kaplan Professional, and is also taught as part of the Systems and Standards home inspection pre-licensing 100-hour course. This course was not created by Joe Cook of the American Inspection Academy (AIA), but is being made available to you by the AIA for the purpose of continuing education. This course covers the basic elements of fireplaces and electric heating that every professional home inspector should be familiar with.

This online course includes video instruction, technical illustrations, color photos, interactive exercises, progress quiz questions, and a comprehensive final exam to completely cover the topic of fireplaces and electric heating. This course counts for 10 hours of CE credit and costs $104.
