    [quote=Dan Harris;154387]Bruce one correction to become nachi certified, an inspector does not have to take any on-line courses first.
    All one needs to do is just promise to take the courses in a certain point of time, noboby has a clue if the inspector took any courses , like the on line quiz nobody knows who took it, that's all on the honor system.

    Sorry my mistake. I should have said that they promise to take some online courses. That they can have there 12 year old child do for them.

    Dan, perhaps ask other institutions that use online education such as Harvard, Yale or the U.S. Air Force. Or perhaps you could ask Ben Gromicko, our Director of Education, and the only IDECC certified distance learning instructor in the inspection industry http://www.nachi.org/images08/ben-gromicko-approval.jpg

    Online education, particularly online video education, is particularly suited for inspector training.

    Enough already.

    There is not any organization that is "the best", only orgs that are better suited for some people.

    It's OK that Lisa says INACHI is the best.
    It's OK for some to say that other orgs are better, for them.

    Find which org is best for you, and realize that another org may be better for someone else.


    Just because everybody doesn't like to eat at the same restaurant that you do, doesn't make them wrong.
    Just because you like the restaurant you go to, doesn't mean it's the best for everyone else.

Unconscionable.
    Ahh, but as you mentioned before for Nachi. ASHI is not a licensing body. ASHI members must meet state licensing requirements before performing inspections. Once they have performed those inspections, which are audited, and pass the NHIE they can apply to become Certified Inspectors. Nachi, on the other hand will "certify" the inspector with nothing more than a credit card and a quiz. Nachi certification is a joke and eventually the courts will hold the nachi company accountable.

    Very true.

    Some inspectors take association affiliation to personally. You should research each association's educational offerings, approvals, business success programs, membership benefits, and marketing, and then join whatever association you feel will most help your business thrive. If you can't make up your mind, join more than one. The affiliations you should be most concerned with are your affiliations to your family, your clients, and your bottom line.
