We are looking for any evidence that any government agency employee, legislator, or home inspector licensing/registration/advisory board member voted to deny course approval of any inspection course based on its delivery method being online.
After a 12-year study, the (http://www.nachi.org/forum/f14/online-beats-classroom.htm) that determined that online education is better than classroom education.
As many of you know, our industry has recently had a few serious injuries to inspectors in states where online education is not approved. InterNACHI knows of two inspectors who have been recently paralyzed do to ladder falls alone. It’s only a matter of time before we hear reports of deaths.
InterNACHI offers a free, online Safe Practices for the Home Inspector](http://www.nachi.org/safety_course.htm) course that would have prevented these serious injuries and several others including one serious injury to a client of an inspector. The course is open to all, online, free, and approved by nearly every state, government agency, or regulator board that has jurisdiction over home inspectors (see right column of www.nachi.org/education.htm )… nevertheless, it can’t achieve state approval in a few states due to a few inspector-harming, consumer-harming people.
We are looking for evidence that exposes anyone holding any public office or regulatory board seat who might have voted against better online inspector education in favor of weaker classroom education, thus contributing to these injuries and others in the future.
We are building a “Worst People in the Inspection Industry” website that explains why these people are responsible for these injuries to some degree and would like to include their names, contact information and pictures on the site.
Please send any information/evidence you have about these individuals to firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll personally send a bunch of great prizes and products to anyone who can help us determine who these people are and reveal them publicly.
The identity of anyone who assists us with this project will be kept private.
