All Illinois home inspector license holders must renew their license by November 30th, 2022. Inspectors must renew their licenses by November 30th of even-numbered years.
Licensees must successfully complete the equivalent of 6 hours of continuing education per year or 12 hours per renewal from an education provider approved and licensed by DFPR. All final exams for continuing education must be proctored and the form emailed directly to email@example.com. InterNACHI has step-by-step instructions for members interested in taking free, online approved courses.
InterNACHI strongly advises license holders to complete CE with enough time to ensure that credits can be submitted before the deadline. Courses can be found by going to the course catelogue and selecting “Illinois” under “Filter by Approvals” on the left.
Effective January 1, 2020, any professional working in a profession that has continuing education requirements must include at least one hour of sexual harassment prevention training to renew their license. This is due to Public Act 100-0762, enacted through Illinois House Bill 4953 (McAuliffe/Bush, 8/10/2019). This CE requirement is included in the number of hours already required under the individual Acts and Rules. It is not intended to increase the number of hours required to renew a license.
InterNACHI offers a free, online course that fulfills this requirement: Illinois Safe Practices and Sexual Harassment Prevention Training Course
Additional information related to license renewal is available at the IDFPR.
