Level One- Residential Property Inspection Reports


The ABS Training Programme is designed to provide the training and professional support required to enter this field, as a skilled practitioner operating in the residential property inspection environment.

The Training Programme and its ongoing support will equip attendees with the knowledge and skills to carry out high quality reports to NZS 4306: Residential Property Inspection. The Programme includes a practical inspection and audit component.

The Building Officials Institute of New Zealand is the peak body representing the building surveying disciplines, and is the only New Zealand based organisation capable of providing the necessary representative, tertiary and internationally linked training support to the building profession.
