Professional Development Courses for your Facility Management Team

How Can We Help?


    To prepare the staff for upcoming changes and ensure readiness, The Inspection Group is conducting a training program focused on NSPIRE protocols. This training will provide comprehensive instruction on the NSPIRE, (National Standards for the Physical Inspection of Real Estate) Standards, which are the defect definitions used in HUD REAC inspections. By simplifying the complex NSPIRE Standards, the training class will empower staff members to not only conduct their own annual NSPIRE inspections but also effectively interpret the resulting data. This enhanced understanding will enable them to prioritize, plan, and budget in a proactive manner, incorporating realistic and cost-effective suggestions and recommendations for NSPIRE implementation in both their daily operations and long-term functions. We can schedule a training session at your property that is focused on your needs whether in person at a venue near you or if you prefer, a virtual session for all your team members regardless of distance.

    The NSPIRE Standards have become the protocol of property inspections for multiple dwelling housing throughout the country. REAC scores allow the condition of both private and public owned, subsidized, and insured properties across the country to be compared within one standard scoring system. HUD also requires the use of the NSPIRE Standards in public housing and multifamily properties during annual inspections. At this training, personnel will learn how to improve not only your organization’s housing quality, but also your REAC inspection scores. Why is this relevant? Because your REAC performance impacts the funding of your PHA or the valuing of your multifamily properties! Don’t miss this invaluable opportunity to educate your staff on the NSPIRE standards! Each participant receives an NSPIRE based Flip Field Guide in an easily understood layout, the latest protocol changes, detailed information on each defect’s scoring relevance, a simple overview about how NSPIRE inspections are performed, and participate in identifying real defect examples. Eliminate questions and confusion by putting the expertise of The Inspection Group to work for you and allow us to install NSPIRE protocols into your organization’s culture!
