80 Hr Field Requirement (North Carolina)

I have completed the 120 course requirement and about to start the 80 hr field requirement in North Carolina. Is my only option to pay another school $1300-$1500 for the field training?

What do the requirements say as to who can provide the needed training?

Can you post the requirements here?


That’s the problem Larry, I cannot find the answer to your question. I thought you could shadow a local inspector in the field to meet the requirement but I do not think that’s the case. If that were the case, I don’t know how to track and prove the field work.

If you are willing to drive west I’m just over the border an hour past the TN/NC state line in Knoxville.
I’ll give you some hours and sign off for you.

Here in New Jersey usually the tutition cost of the school includes the external training.


According to the application Larry posted, course providers are supposed to provide both 120 classroom hours AND 80 hours field training.

When I follow the InterNACHI links it takes me to “CASA” which charges $1500 for the field training.

There are additional affiliates listed below CASA.

In some states, paying for schooling is a requirement for licensure. This applies to other trades as well, such as plumbing, electrical, HVAC, or even cosmetology. I hope you find a work around.

Thanks Bert, I appreciate the offer but I’m looking to stay local to complete this training. Great video, looks like you have a high class operation going!

InterNACHI training does not include the field training unfortunately but I think I have a good lead on getting scheduled.


InterNACHI does not provide the field training. Maybe because they are a National accredited school?

Why worry about a few hours drive? Training from Bert would be the best training you could get.
