1st license will be $680 for a two year period. It also looks like the NHIE will be the test so with those fees of about $225 or so, first year “grandfathered” inspectors can expect to pay about $900-1000.
Non-grandfathered inspectors will have a much greater cost. 120 hours actual classroom time, 40 hours of ride-alongs. Figure another $2000-$4000 for the 120 hour classroom course and who knows how much seasoned inspectors will be charging for ride-alongs.
But that all depends on when the classroom courses will be approved. Nothing like not meeting the grandfather requirements and having to shut down business until the classroom time, ride-alongs and test are completed. The cost could be lower at some colleges but the time frame is much greater. :shock:
