Indiana Professional Licensing Agency (iPLA) and the Indiana Home Inspector Licensing Board approves InterNACHI’s free, online “Indiana Licensure Law & Regulations for Home Inspectors Course.” To take the course, visit

This course is part of the free, online pre-licensing course for home inspector licensure in Indiana available by visiting

BTW: This is a required course for pre-licensing.

I took this course recently. It’s well written and I recommend it to all Indiana home inspectors, not just new inspectors. I do recommend a few additions to the course.

  1. Show Indiana’s definition of “Significant Deficient”. Below was taken directly from Indiana’s government website. ([FONT=TTE21BA6B8t00][size=1]
    [/size][/FONT]878 IAC 1-1-19 “Significantly deficient” defined
    Authority: IC 25-20.2-3-8
    Affected: IC 25-20.2
    Sec. 19. “Significantly deficient” means unsafe or not functioning.
  2. Add Indiana’s definition of “unsafe”. Below was taken directly from Indiana’s governmental website.
    [/FONT]Authority: IC 25-20.2-3-8
    Affected: IC 25-20.2
    Sec. 25. “Unsafe” means a condition in a readily accessible, installed system or component that is judged to be a significant risk of personal injury during normal, day-to-day use. The risk may be due to:
    (1) damage;
    (2) deterioration;
    (3) improper installation; or
    (4) a change in accepted residential construction standards.
    Keep up the good work.


Has Indiana implemented state wide building codes in every county and city, for every home being built? If not, how can you state an item is defective, or use any of those terms in your reports…???

Like everyone else, we are not inspecting houses to meet today’s code (or any other year’s code). That would be totally ridiculous. It’s trying to offer some guidance on what may be considered unsafe.

To answer your question though, codes are not the same from county to county. Most of the state is operating on the 2008 electric code, but omitting a few requirements like AFCI.
