Hi folks,

I have been told that after joining NACHI I would be able to call myself a Certified Home Inspector (CHI). This is reserved for CAPHI only, is it not?

CAHPI does not use the 'Certified Home Inspector (CHI) mainly because it has become so generic and commonplace that it is virtually meaningless. It is used so generically that it is almost impossible to protect legally. Unfortunately, this ‘designation’ is offered by several questionable groups and training facilities as well as some truly good ones.

The CAHPI National designation is ‘National Certificate Holder’ and the CAHPI provincial units have the Registered Home Inspector (RHI) designation.

what does NACHI have?

Silent Wanderer…

InterNACHI is a professional tradeo organization that has members worldwide. If offers members and non-members many things useful in business.

For members, it offers unique opportunities at discounted education and member benefits. For non-members, it offers free marketing information, an unbelievable breadth of knowledge from its inspectors, and free on-line education (with some pay-per-view, as well).

InterNACHI also owns several professional trademarks or certification marks.

At just $289 per year to join, a listing on just two competing pay-to-join inspector search engines costs more. InterNACHI has to most members, and the most benefits, for the least amount of money.

Thanks for the info Joe, but i was referring to what designations NACHI has. What are they? CHI?

InterNACHI does not have CHI and never did.

It had CMI but gave it away to an outside organization, the Master Inspector Certification Board, when it became clear the members of InterNACHI did not want a 2-tiered association.

Raymond Wand IS the silent wanderer.

He no longer can use CHI or RHI.He has been expelled from NACHI for ethics violations and from OAHI for ethics violations among other things.

Raymond Wand,

**We all know that this is not true. BTW You are not listed on the OAHI site, why is that?:shock: **
**You are under investigation with OAHI for ethics violations among other more serious matters. It seems to me that you are Persona non Grata with every association.:cool: **
I will be sending a letter to OAHI soon. I want to advise them of your behavior on this MB.

**How is the Town of Caledon treating you lately?:shock: **

You are a disgrace to the Home Inspection Industry Raymond Wand. You should really think about your future in another industry because in this industry, you have lost all credibility. [Not that you had any to begin with]


Raymond Wand provides professional residential inspection services to buyers and sellers throughout Caledon, Wellington, Halton, Dufferin, and Peel Counties in Ontario, Canada.

As the principal inspector, Raymond has earned his reputation as a professional in the home inspection field by providing effective quality service. Raymond has conducted over two-thousand inspections [that’s bull]for satisfied clients from Canada, including some of Canada’s top CEO’s, as well as corporate and private relocations for clients from the U.S.A., England, Germany, and France. The company has been operating full time locally I inspect on average of 5 homes per year in my small community] since 1991. At RWHIS, business is derived exclusively from deception, reputation, referrals and repeat clients I wish].
Raymond has a background in building and property management as well as construction and repair. This is not true, but it sounds cool. He has extensively renovated several of his own homes,I did a bad job, but who cares! including the historic 1849 stone-grist mill in Hillsburgh, Ontario. Currently he owns a picturesque, forty-acre farm located on Shaws Creek in Alton and has lived in the area for over 20 years,he has experience in sucking **** and local knowledge that have helped make RWHIS the preferred choice amongst astute clients.
It has often been said the quality of any company can best be judged by the quality of its people. Raymond will gladly be judged by the quality of his service.
It is your right to know about the condition of a property you are about to purchase, so don’t hire me. Hire a NACHI CERTIFIED HOME INSPECTOR, anyone else is just looking around!
Consider making a home inspection a pre-condition of your Offer To Purchase.
Alternatively if you are about to sell, consider a pre-listing inspection.

[size=3]• What’s that?[/size]
*And I am always on time! **
This is a very good reason to hire me, I’m allways on time!
