Atlanta home inspectors - I'd like to ride along for experience

Hi everyone.
I’m working my way through the courses to take the exam. I’d like to follow some inspectors at work to help my learning. Is anyone in the Atlanta area (I’m in south Atl metro, Fayette) willing to let me ride along?

I’ve reached out to some contacts I had asking and didn’t get a response. Am I asking the wrong question - are there reasons you don’t want someone on a ride-along?

TIA, Cindy

What Q’s are you asking?

To avoid competition.
Look for someone farther away from you.

And for this very reason, be sure to ‘vet’ who you are trying to ‘ride along’ with, as yes, there are some dirtbags out there (as in all businesses) that will purposely steer you in the wrong direction to mess you up! You need to know more than they are an inspector and they belong to Internachi, ASHI, etc.
Good luck.

I’m asking them if I can ride along with an inspector to observe and learn.

Welcome to our forum, Cindy!..Enjoy! :smile:

Cindy, contact some CMIs or CPIs within 40 to 50 miles, or closer, 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.
Here is the link: https://certifiedmasterinspector.org/members
And the link for CPIs: https://www.nachi.org/certified-inspectors
And Mentors: https://www.nachi.org/mentoring

Best of luck to you!

thank you Jeffrey.

Thanks Larry. Makes sense. I will check out the links and hope to find someone secure enough to have a mentoring mindset.

Shoot Megan an email. Perhaps she can assist or give you some direction. I absolutely trust her!
(Tell her I referred you)! :wink:

Thanks Jeffrey! I just emailed Megan. She is in my area! I told her you gave me her name. CA

Thanks Larry. I reached out to Fedor in Atlanta. CA

Cindy, if you Google InterNACHI members in Lagrange GA, you’ll see a list of those south of you that may be willing to help too.
