As the industry standard, the National Home Inspector Examination is required in 31 states for home inspection licensing. Passage of the exam is also a membership requirement for the American Society of Home Inspectors, the California Real Estate Inspection Association, the Hawaii Association of Home Inspectors, the Alberta Professional Home Inspectors Society, and the Canadian Association of Home & Property Inspectors.

Home inspectors in non-regulated states are encouraged to take the exam when entering the profession or looking to take the next step in their career. The passage of the NHIE can be a great way to differentiate yourself and your services when marketing your business.
