and Modular Home Inspection
Days - 7 hours*
The need for qualified manufactured home inspectors is on the rise in this growing industry and you can fill that need. Seize this opportunity and expand your business. This unique “niche” market opportunity is expected to expand to meet national housing market requirements. As the price of traditional site built homes rise across the country, so does the need for more affordable manufactured housing. In January 2006 alone nearly 12,000 manufactured homes were shipped from HUD certified manufacturers and the production numbers are expected to increase. Single wide to triple wide, these unique, high quality homes are becoming the norm, not the exception. These home owners are educated and savvy. Some homes are now selling for over a million dollars in select locations. Don’t miss out on this exciting inspection market.

wanted to thank you for the Manufactured Homes Course.
It was eye opening, informative and I feel I took some
knowledge back with me. It's truly a pleasure to learn
from professionals such as yourself. I will highly recommend
Kaplan to some of the guys I know in the business. Probably
will be signing up for your Mold class and the Fast
Track class you described."
"James, thank you for teaching the Manufactured Home course this past weekend. I found it very informative and helpful. I am looking forward to my first mobile home inspection. I feel you are a wealth of information and look forward to taking classes with you in the future."
