ASHI Credentials are not quickly or easily obtained.
ASHI Certified Inspectors have passed the tough and comprehensive 4 hour National Home Inspector Examination given by the Examination Board of Professional Home Inspectors. This exam is proctored. That means that it is a closed book test taken in a professional and monitored testing environment where those being tested are identified by a state photo ID. This is not a simple on-line test which can be taken with open books and help from others!
Note Well! The NYS Department of State allowed this notoriously easy and un-proctored online test to be used as proof of competency for home inspector licensing for those who took this easy online test before December 31, 2005. Beware! There are many NYS licensed home inspectors who have never taken a home inspection exam that proves competency.
For your protection, demand an inspector who has ASHI logo privileges.
ASHI Certified Inspectors performed at least 250 fee-paid inspections before becoming certified.
