    Licensing solve nothing. There should be no Grandfather Clause in any home inspection bill. All inspectors should have to meet the requirements, this would help ensure inspectors at least know the basics.

    There are going to be good and bad home inspectors licensed or not. Thats how it is in any industry. Un-licensed states should start a consumer recovery fund and require a certain number of continueing education. We can regulate our own industry. But to have a grandfather clause is unfair to the consumer and that is what home inspection bills are suppose to protect, right?

    Licensing is what it has always been. When the average person gets a license to drive, is that saying that he/she is a good driver? Not always. When a teacher becomes licensed to teach, does that automatically make them a good teacher? Not always. If a home inspector becomes licensed, does that make him a good home inspector? I think we all know that answer. When did licensing = properly educated?

    I know one thing that licensing has done, it is a lot harder to hire an employee and when you do, it is likely that you will want to keep him.
