The purpose of a practice examination is to minimize the impact of construct irrelevant test administration effects (e.g., test format, software, modality or interface) on test performance by familiarizing candidates with the examination experience. Practice examinations may provide a raw number or percentage correct scores and/or sub scores; however, they do not provide candidates with a pass/fail status, diagnostic information or predictive interpretation of performance or success.

A practice exam is provided to give you a general idea of what to expect on the formal more detailed exam. You need to register to take the practice exam. There's no fee. Entry Email:

The NHICC completed a study and report for Foreign Agricultural Worker Housing. This course is intended to provide housing inspectors with the background information and technical details required to conduct housing audits for Foreign Agricultural Worker Housing. 

Currently the reporting varies from most provinces and territories. This course will help identify these differences, and discuss what resources currently exist that will help in reporting process.

Although there's no prerequisite to enroll in this course, it is highly recommended that the participant should have some experience in conducting home inspections.  

A fee of $100 is required payable by PayPal for any inspector that is not currently enrolled in the NHICC National Certification Program.
