Hi to all,
John, while I cannot advise you on the quality of education from any of the franchise organizations I would give you the following words of caution.
The state that you live in is one that is currently enacting an inspection legislation, and it is very likely that part of that legislation will be the requirement to have passed the NHIE exam, dependent on your existing experience you may find this a relatively hard exam to pass, therefore you should perhaps be looking at a home inspection franchise that offers a very comprehensive training package geared towards passing the NHIE exam.
I would hate to see any businessman buy franchise in a licensed state only to find that within a short space of time that the training provided by the franchise is not up to the standards required by the state. I know that all of the franchise organizations offer inspected training as part of their package but I for one would find inconceivable that someone from outside of the industry or the related trades could be taught how to pass the NHIE exam with the typical one-week training packages provided by most of the franchises.
