Fundamentals of Home Inspection: Curriculum Rubric & Course Evaluation Tool

Once a Fundamentals course curriculum has been submitted for approval, it is evaluated by a home inspection subject matter expert (SME) evaluators using the Curriculum Rubric & Course Evaluation Tool (Rubric). Based on the Rubric ratings, the Fundamentals course curriculum is either approved or denied for delivery.

The Rubric provides DOL and SME evaluators with a means of determining the quality of a Fundamentals course curriculum submission. The Rubric is also intended to provide a common language for DOL and SME evaluators to draw on during the submission evaluation process.
