So Strange it is about One month till the news is realized about The National Certification.
I hope it will not be as big a flop as the one that was going to set those inspectors who signed up
to be the leaders in the New system to be released at Whistler last Oct.
There was a lot of excitement leading up to it and how only those who paid to take the course could do inspections .
We were told that there would be a huge demand for those inspectors trained in the NEW system .
Many paid large amounts and arranged there schedule so they could be the leaders .
Well it did not go ahead and all the plans promised for this year also did not go .
CMHC paid a lot of money according to a statement Bill Mullen sent out.
I wonder is CMHC again paying money this year.
It seems strange that CMHC is supporting CAHPI/OAHI when they are only a small part of the inspectors in Ontario

The PDI session in Whistler will count as 'The Course' for all attending, and CAHPI will be giving those people the CAHPI PDI Certification.
The difference is that since CMHC is heavily subsidizing this 'session' and it is our pilot session, the attendees will be expected to provide information and feedback about the course and protocols and their field experience. There will be 120 'consultants' at this session. Since the CMHC subsidy basically saves our inspectors around $ 12,000 in total, we felt that nobody would mind helping out a bit.
There will be several courses offered at a later date. We hope to have these courses delivered in every province within the next few months. CMHC estimates that about 200,000 homes in Canada will need this inspection each year, so we need to get people properly trained and certified.
