So I just passed my state exam for my home inspector license, and I’m planning on getting my 4-point, wind mitigation, WDO, and pools and spas certs. I noticed that the amount of course hours for the InterNACHI 4-point inspection certification course go like this:
Advanced HVAC: 60hrs
Advanced Electrical: 30hrs
Water Heaters: 26hrs
General Roof: 35hrs
Total hrs: 151hrs
I was pretty surprised by this, considering the entire course for the full home inspection license is only 120 hours. Isn’t conducting a 4 point inspection a lot simpler than a full home inspection? Why does the 4 point course consists of significantly more hours than the pre-licensing one when it only covers 4 systems?
Sorry if this post comes across as me complaining, I’m just genuinely curious what’s up with that.
