We are pleased that the Kansas Attorney General has caused the national association requirement to be stricken from the Kansas home inspector licensing law: http://khirb.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/ag-opinion-2-12-09.pdf
Inspectors had worried that the licensing board, chaired by Jeff Barnes a member of ASHI, a known no-entrance-requirement diploma mill with a 35 second online application process that requires nothing more than a valid credit card: http://www.homeinspector.org/join/application/default.aspx , might use his public position to require inspectors to financially support the consumer-harming diploma mill.
Not in Kansas!
Inspectors are no longer required to join any association and associations will all have to compete solely on membership benefits: www.nachi.org/benefits.htm, success tools: www.nachi.org/success.htm, education: www.nachi.org/education, etc.
We applaud the Attorney General’s decision to force diploma mills to get their members the old fashioned way… and earn them.
For the welfare of Kansas consumers, InterNACHI is now asking the Office of Attorney General to deny a home inspector license to any applicant convicted of engaging in child pornography or caught financially supporting a known diploma mill.
