In order to provide value as a house inspector certified by InterNACHI, I am required to complete a minimum of 24 hours of continuing education each year. Listed below is my official education log and home inspection certifications.
Home Inspection Education
Home Inspection Certifications
I am a Certified Professional Inspector® trained by InterNACHI—the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (www.NACHI.org)—which is the world’s largest nonprofit association of residential and commercial property inspectors, and provides education, training, certification, benefits and support for its members. All InterNACHI-Certified Professional Inspectors® are required to pass an Inspector Exam, follow a comprehensive Standards of Practice, abide by a strict Code of Ethics, and take accredited Continuing Education courses each year in order to maintain their membership in good standing.
I have acquired extensive home inspector training through InterNACHI’s rigorous Continuing Education curriculum, which includes dozens of live classroom, online, and video training courses, written by experts in their field, which have received more than 1,400 accreditations by state and governmental agencies throughout North America.
In order to become certified, I was required to take inspection courses related to the interior and exterior of the home, including the common and major areas of concern for home buyers, such as the foundation, heating and cooling, roof, plumbing, and electrical systems.
Here is the list of InterNACHI courses required for initial certification:
- Safe Practices for the Home Inspector
- 25 Standards Every Inspector Should Know
- Residential Plumbing Overview for Inspectors
- How to Perform Residential Electrical Inspections
- How to Perform Roof Inspections
- How to Inspect HVAC Systems
- Structural Issues for Home Inspectors
- How to Inspect the Exterior
- How to Inspect the Attic, Insulation, Ventilation and Interior
- How to Perform Deck Inspections
- How to Inspect for Moisture Intrusion
- How to Inspect Fireplaces, Stoves, and Chimneys
The State of Ohio does not require licensing of home inspectors; however, the certifications and Continuing Education required by InterNACHI are more than adequate training for the certified inspector so that I can provide sufficient and accurate information regarding a home’s condition.
