Two months before registration is scheduled to start in Kansas, Jeff Barnes, the HI Registration Board Chairman is advertising on his website that he is a registered Kansas home inspector and is publishing a registration number of 0110-0001.
Did he award this registration number to himself without paying any fees? Has the infrastructure for registration actually been established? Did he select this number to give himself advantage over other HI inspectors in Kansas with more experience and qualifications than he has?
Is this degree of false advertising okay for everyone, or only the Chairman?
Here is what his website looks like at this printing:
Has his committee already proposed a penalty for falsely advertising a registration number?
Has he awarded any more of these fictitious registration numbers to anyone else, or just to himself?
