    SOP's are what they are for a reason. Somebody has to make sure that some guys spend more than 1/2 hour at the property.

    Now... if they would only do the same to Real Estate Agents......

    Arizona proposal is a piece of cake! Try Texas - requires 448 hours of training - a state test that has a 32&#37; pass rate - E & O insurance - have to use the Texas inspection form - 16 hours of contiuning ed a year! I am glad I got my license in 1998. I do believe that the new insurance requirement has run many part-time inspectors out of the business. It may be hard to believe but even with this "excellent government program and professional guidance" we still have many questionable inspectors!

    I heartily agree Bob and as you gain experience in home inspector litigation you find there are home inspectors and those that think they're home inspectors.

    Actually TX has three different levels of licensing and a Fast Track program.
    TREC - License Levels and Paths (How to Become a Real Estate Inspector)

    The education hours are not he same at each level. As for the exam, last conversation I had about the TX exam was with Wayne Thornburg before left TREC this past year. According to him the pass ratio for the TX exam had risen to around 77% simply because the exam had not been changed in over six years and the answers were known by the schools. So the schools were teaching more to pass the exam.

    That old 32% pass ratio figure was from around 1999-2001 when the exam had been redone. Having a low pass ratio does not always mean that the exam is good, it can also mean the exam has poorly written or incorrect questions in it.

    Insurance in other licensed states had acted like a "gate keeper" and has reduced the number of inspectors. It also reduces the number of part time inspectors to almost zero.
