How to get parallel inspections done?

I have completed my 80 hour course, I have called a few local Ohio licensed inspectors about doing the 10 parallel inspection and they all say “Sorry, why would I train the competition?”
Any suggestions ?

Derek try calling some inspectors that inspect a few hours away from where you live.


Ah, I see no longer the competition. Thank you for the tip !

And make sure you aren’t shy about paying them a fair fee for their time/effort!

That may take some time. Look at it from their point of view. They’ve made it….

Welcome to our forum, Derek!..enjoy participating. :smiley:

Dereck, contact some CMIs or CPIs within 40 to 50 miles, or farther away, to your area and communicate with them. Maybe one, or more, will help you. Some inspectors feel as though they are training their competition by ride-alongs or mentoring or hiring.
