Approved Schools vs. Registered Schools
Is the home inspection school you are considering
licensed and approved? Many other home inspection schools are registered with a state education authority but are actually unlicensed schools. Schools that are registered, but not licensed, meet only minimum standards on the basis of their written application to the state. These registered schools do not meet the more extensive standards required by the state for licensed schools. Unlicensed schools are not specifically approved to operate and are not verified by the state's education authority. Licensed schools, however are accountable to the state education authority. Licensed and approved schools, such as Kaplan, protect student rights and assure the quality of your educational experience.
