Successful completion of the prescribed program of studies in Home Inspection at Seneca College of Appllied Arts and Techology.

Certified member of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI). 

Licensing of home inspectors only sets a minimum standard. Much like being up to code, any less would be illegal. Imaginary people, children, psychics (who claim to "sense" if a house is OK) and even pets can be home inspectors. That is why NACHI front-ends its membership requirements. They turn down more than 1/2 the inspectors who want to join because they can't pass the exam or fulfill our membership requirements.

InterNACHI's inspectors have to meet all of the membership requirements and pass the exam before being accepted into NACHI. They don't offer associate or candidate memberships (junior memberships for inspectors who have not met the requirements).

Have to pass NACHI's Online Inspector Examination every year.
