After 33 years, ASHI, the American Society of Home Inspectors has adopted its first entrance requirement. For years ASHI has been known as “diploma mill ASHI” for allowing anyone with nothing more than a valid credit card to join via their 35-second online application.
Tired of being known as diploma mill ASHI, today ASHI announced that it has removed the “come only with a valid credit card” online application from its website.
I congratulate ASHI for its decision to adopt entrance requirements (other than a valid credit card) and for its decision to take down its 35-second “Shazam! You’re an inspector!” online application.
