Oklahoma State Law: Oklahoma Licensure (Section 858-622 of Title 59) enacted in 2001. The “Oklahoma Home Inspection Licensing Act” provides for the licensing of home inspectors through the State Board of Health, and a newly created Committee of Home Inspector Examiners (Committee). The Committee is charged with advising the Board of Health in establishing rules relating to:

  1. qualifications and examinations for licensure (the committee has adopted The National Home Inspector Examination as the test for minimum competence),
  2. renewal requirements,
  3. reinstatement of licenses,
  4. continuing education,
  5. standards of practice and prohibitions,
  6. approval of schools and educational course content for home inspection,
  7. standards for schools to remain approved to provide courses of instruction,
  8. reciprocity agreements, and
  9. investigative procedures.

These Rules have been established in Title 310, Chapter 276. In order to take an examination for licensure, an applicant must be at least 18 years of age, and successfully complete 50 hours of home inspection training, or its equivalent, as determined by the Committee. Renewal of licenses will be granted provided home inspectors attend five hours of continuing education within the preceding 12 months. Under the law, licensed home inspectors will be required to carry no less than $50,000 of general liability insurance.
