Seems to be another seller of titles for marketing.
Master This, Certified That, Professional Association of Whatever.
Quick look and it sounds like any other Home Inspection Org.
Just exploiting specific marketing names to achieve increased hits on Google search and some hype.

Looks like it is modeled after Nachi
Nachi may even have something to do with it

They are not associated with NACHI whatsoever; their focus has nothing to do with typical Home Inspections… i.e. pre-listing, listing, selling. NAARPI is focused on REO, BPO,RENTAL, Collateral etc i.e. making money.
I am making more money in property preservation and performing REO inspections then I ever made as a professional licensed inspector. Good luck and keep on posting, I have inspections to do….
Yes they only pay 30 to 115 dollars but I am working and they PAY.

Thank you Robert for sending me this link.
I am NAARPI certified and my focus is on property preservations, this is typically an area“professional” HOME inspectors no nothing about. It appears you do not know the difference between the different types of Property Inspection… there is more to inspecting then just working for the buyer or seller or in some cases the realtor.
Home many of you “Professionals Inspectors” have performed one of the following:
1. Pre listing,
4. Drive by
5. Pre Agreement
6. Move in
7. Move out
8. Maintenance verification
If you only know about the top 3 chances are you are trapped in a bubble and never heard of NAARPI, SOFI, FEMA, HUD, PITI, AFTI,
Good luck in life……but turn the light on in the closet.

I never heard of this company.Must be one of the inspectors that's trapped in a bubble
After being invited to turn my closet light on, I also found this on the application page,
Please use this secure online form to apply for membership in NAARPI. (PLEASE) PULL UP
https://www.nachi.org/applications THIS is the kind of form we want here.....
Not associated with nach0 ??? .The appliciation states you send $365.00 to nacho. Take nachos on-line quiz, send nacho 4 sample inspection reports and all of the nacho non -verified requirements to be an instant certified inspector
. Me thinks the duck theory applies to that claim

The only one out of that list I haven't done is #9 Collateral. Don't even know what that would be.

I've done most of them as well, but I discovered them by myself looking to support my business when I was starting out 18 years ago. I never depended on my professional organization to provide the ideas or contacts for me. I would think that any good business person could and would do the same.. Just smart business to branch out and put your eggs in many baskets instead of just one or two.
Heck, I'm one of the few inspectors in my area that is doing draw inspections (commercial and residential) and just this year to date that part of my company is sitting at around $35K. Not bad for chump change inspections as some inspectors call it! I use this type of work as filler work, this type of work fills in the empty time slots throughout the week.

Good evening Erick,
NAARPI is a good organization if your focus is on Field Inspections (REO, BPO and Insurance type of Inspections), I first learned of them thru NARPM the National Association of Rental Property Managers.
Recently their course was approved by TREC/TAR for MCE credit, as well it is under review by several other states. Not sure what your back ground is however if you are wanting to become a Field Inspector NAARPI is a great choice, if you are wanting to become a home inspector you might want to look into getting a lot of additional training. There are several organization out there for you to choose from too many to list here.
Much success in life
