SIRI Certification Inspection Training

HomeSafe began researching the usage of infrared for the federal government in the mid-1990s and in early 2001 filed patents for its use in the areas of home, air quality, energy and termite inspections. Six of HomeSafe's patents were approved by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in late 2008 and early 2009. Three more are currently under review by the USPTO.

HomeSafe began performing inspections, franchising and licensing its IR inspection protocols and training and certifying inspectors in 2003. Since then, HomeSafe has trained inspectors throughout the United States, the Philippines and South Africa.

HomeSafe pioneered the usage of IR in home, energy, air quality and termite inspections and has developed the industry's first and only comprehensive, in-depth, hands-on training program for effective usage of IR technology in home inspections. HomeSafe’s 42-hour course, including 26 hours of online classroom instruction and 16 hours of hands-on field training, will make you the infrared inspection expert in your market!
