I’ve evolved. You have all convinced me that longevity and experience needs to be a requirement of CMI because longevity and experience are indicators of competence. An inspector who lasts long, likely lasts long because he/she is doing things right. This is true for most businesses.
Anyway, I thank the members who dragged me kicking and screaming to this point in my evolution. Thanks for your persistence… I know I’m a tough case.
Anyway, here is my new proposed formula which takes into consideration education, longevity, and education:
Number of continuing education hours completed in lifetime + number of weeks in business + number of inspections performed in lifetime must = 1,000 or more with a minumum of 100 in each category.
What say ye?
