What does Certified Home Inspector mean?

 

When you are ready to hire a home inspector, take a look at the website for the Arizona Board of Technical Registrations.  It will give you information regarding the requirements to be a home inspector in the state of Arizona.  Your home inspector should be certified.

And what does that mean? It means that your home inspector has fulfilled the educational requirements, has passed the state and national exam, and has performed the required amount of “parallel” inspections; that is, has performed inspections along with a seasoned home inspector who is carefully supervising the inspector in training.  The inspector has also passed the criminal background check and has paid the required fees.

It is worth the time to check out your potential inspector to make sure you are getting what you are paying for.  To learn more about certified home inspector requirements in Arizona, go to:
