So you want to build your own home, but don’t know where to start

Well, help is on the way. If you want to build your own home in the Province of British Columbia, you have to obtain an Owner Builder Authorization from the BC Housing Licensing & Consumer Services (LCS).

We believe the Owner Builder Exam Preparation Course has covered all of the recommended topics the BC Housing Licensing and Consumer Services (LCS) department has listed on their website. Based on our belief, we are prepared to stand behind you in your efforts to be able to build your own home by allowing you to attend another offering of the course in an instance where you fail the exam. There will only be a nominal cost of $60.00 to cover meals and refreshments.

As of July 4, 2016 in BC, all applicants to the BC Housing Licensing & Consumer Services (LCS) for an Owner Builder Authorization are required to meet all eligibility criteria and pass an exam to evaluate their knowledge and understanding of home building basics.

Owner Builder Training Ltd. is a group of dedicated highly skilled professionals with a combined 200 years’ experience in the construction industry.  Areas of expertise range from hands on construction, building science, energy efficient home design, ventilation and heating and legal.  We are a team that is dedicated to training consumers and contractors – we have been doing this since the early 1980s and now wish to pass on our skills and expertise on to you.

The “Owner Builder Authorization” course was developed and initiated because we found those who wished to write the compulsory HPO exam had nowhere to obtain professional instruction and information that would assist them in passing the exam and bring them one step closer to their dream – to build their own home.

Over 25 years I have worked with Warren Jones both when he was a home builder and when he was an instructor for the Canadian Home Builders Association. In both cases I was impressed with his depth of knowledge and his willingness to take on new challenges. In fact I would say that Warren is a person who thrives on meeting new challenges and succeeding. I also found him to always have the highest integrity in his business and personal dealings and I have no hesitation in recommending him to potential employers and clients.
