1. They Are Required To Keep Up With The Industry
CPIs are required to go through one of the industries most rigorous continuing education programs in order to keep their certification. This includes online, video, and live training courses that have been vetted by more than 1,400 agencies across the country. To put it succinctly this is the gold standard of continuing education for home inspectors. They are required to learn just about everything that you can learn about home inspections.
2. They Are Bound To Certain Standards Of Practice
InterNACHI has developed official standards of practice that all of their inspectors are bound to. This document is constantly being revised in order to keep up with best practices in the industry. This ensures that every client will get a comprehensive home inspection report that includes all of the information they need to make smart home-buying decisions.
3. They Must Adhere To A Strict Code Of Ethics
There are so many ways that a home inspector could compromise their ethics for profit. They could share your private information with 3rd parties, withhold important information about the integrity of your home, run a repair business on the side and funnel their clients into it. There’s no shortage of dubious ways for a home inspector to enrich themselves. InterNACHI requires all of their inspectors to abide by a strict code of ethics. This code stipulates that they will put you first and always protect your rights as a consumer.
4. They Can Apply For Special Certifications
InterNACHI offers specialized training in a number of areas including mold inspections, indoor air quality, and infrared home inspections.
