There could be a carbon monoxide leak at the property. On average 50,000 people go to the emergency room due to accidental CO poisoning and 430 people die.

There are an estimated 51,000 home electrical fires each year resulting in 1,400 injuries, 500 deaths, and $1.3 billion in property damage.

Then there are the things most people don’t notice, like spindles on a second floor handrail being too far apart. What if a baby crawls through the spindles and is seriously injured or dies?

Rock Star Home Inspectors to our team!

Are you thinking about pursuing a career in home inspection? Home inspection is a fast-growing field which makes it a lucrative option for a career change or a new venture for those who have been out of the workforce.

However, this field requires a great deal of intricate knowledge about all types of homes. Experience with construction, electricity, plumbing, or another home-related industry will put you a step ahead, but there are still ways you can get your foot in the door if you lack related experience. Either way, our training program will help you become a Rock Star home inspector.

Home inspector requirements and qualifications vary by state. States set their own requirements for licensure, including whether or not you need to pass an exam or complete on-the-job training. Take a look at the list below to see how you can start preparing for a career in home inspection.

Steps to Become a Home Inspector

  1.  Look up the home inspector requirements for your state.   

    You should start by researching the requirements for home inspector licensing in your state. InterNachi and ASHI are two of the best places that provide the requirement information for most states. Having a clear idea of what’s required will help you plan your tasks and create goals with deadlines. Once you know what you’ll need to accomplish, you can feel confident moving forward. For instance, to be licensed in the state of Delaware you need 140 hours of education, 75 supervised home inspections, and to pass the national exam.

  2. Complete a home inspector training program.

    Training programs will give you the background knowledge you’ll need to successfully pursue your new career. This knowledge will be a foundation for you to build from with future experience. Even if your state does not have training or licensure requirements, completing a home inspection training program will give you the boost you need to succeed on the job.
    Use the training as an opportunity to learn new things and test your skills. You’ll emerge as a true professional with a comprehensive set of skills and knowledge.

  3. Pass your home inspection licensing exam.

    Your state may or may not require that you pass an exam to earn your home inspection license. If you do need to pass an exam, start preparing early. For example, the state of Delaware requires that you pass the National Home Inspector Examination (NHIE). You can register for this exam and set a date so that you have a clear deadline in place to build accountability.

Matt Nicholas was absolutely amazing. I’m glad to have had him as my inspector. He explained everything he seen as we walked around the house as well as went over everything at the end. He gave me a little teaching on things in the house that I had no idea about. I’m a first time home buyer so alot of things were new to me. Not only was he good at his job but overall he was easy going and easy to talk with. Thank you Matt!

Shawn at Amerispec was fantastic. He was able to answer all of my questions and was super helpful. He helped me understand what was going on with several issues around the home and steps that can be taken to repair and prevent future issues. If I could give more than 5 stars I would, nothing but great service!
