Hi All! I am interested in becoming an inspector. This is all brand new to me so I have a lot to learn! I was wondering if anyone locally would allow a ride along and/or mentorship? Thank you!
Claire, contact some CMIs or CPIs within 40 to 50 miles, or farther, to your area and communicate with them. Maybe one, or more, will help you. Some inspectors feel as though they are training their competition by ride-alongs or mentoring or hiring.
Here is the link for CMIs: Find a Certified Master Inspector®
And the link for CPIs: Find Certified Home Inspectors Near You - InterNACHI®
Also, you may want to take advantage of your Education Team at email@example.com for specific questions e.g. https://www.nachi.org/become-home-inspector.htm and https://www.nachi.org/masterclass.htm . And there is the new training cards app Chris Morrell, our CEO, offers: New training app for home inspectors
And there is the https://www.nachi.org/howto.htm for many other things. And the InterNACHI online education page: How do I navigate the InterNACHI online education page? | InterNACHI FAQ
Welcome to our forum, Claire!..enjoy participating.
How much knowledge, and to what level, have you acquired to date so far?
IMO, you will have a difficult time locating anyone to give you any quality mentoring time until you prove yourself with, at the very minimum, a modicum of basic building science education.
Good luck to you.
Is this still a thing?
