Requirements to apply for membership (working member):
You must agree that (after you join) if you have never performed a home inspection for a fee you will submit 4 mock inspections to NACHI's Report Review Committee before performing your first home inspection for a client.
Unlike other home inspection associations, NACHI front-ends all of its membership requirements. In other words, all of our members must fulfill our membership requirements before they can apply for membership. Other associations have little or no entrance requirements and encourage their members and candidates to go out and perform hundreds of unqualified inspections for poor, unsuspecting consumers.
