I think it should be a requirement.

Interesting as far as CE requirements is they put home inspectors in the same category as barbers and cosmetologist. I guess they figured that’s how easy it is ( nothing against (barbers or cosmetologist)

Yeah, it can take longer to become a barber:

And lots of people care more about their hair than their house, lol.


Wow! That’s a lot of hours. I see it also takes 1500 hours in Illinois. I had no idea it required that many. I guess when you license someone with a razor blade and scissors you need to be a little more strict.
