I wanted to update everyone on what occured at the last Board meeting.
1. We received clarification on the grandfathering clause from the Board's General Counsel...
The law was in fact fully enacted on July 13, 2004 when signed into law by the Governor. The statute requires an applicant to have been in the home inspection business 1 year prior to the enactment date AND either have completed 25 inspections in the last 12 months OR completed 100 inspections over the length of your career. The 1 year requirement is mandatory in order to get grandfathered no matter how many inspections you may have done. So in order to qualify for grandfathering under the you had to be active in the business by July 13, 2003.
2. Inspection Service Agreements: The Board is still considering this but if the Board provides a contact it will be informational only not mandatory usage.
3. The pre-licensing training requirements are as follows:
64 Hours of classroom training in "Core Home Inspection Curriculum" by a Board Approved Education Provider.
64 Hours of Labrotory/Field Training with at least 50% being onsite at residential property. This must be provided by a Board Approved Education Provider as well.
Completion of a minimum of 100 inspections under the direct supervision of a Kentucky Licensed Home Inspector.
The content of "Core Home Inspection Curriculum" is yet to be decided.
Applicants will also need to pass the Board approved Exam. (Content and source is yet to be determined.)
This very similar to the old Lexington/Fayette Co. license requirement.
4. Continuing Education- Each License holder will be required to complete 28 hours of approved continuing education every two years. A portion will be a Core Home Inspection Class and a Legal/Ethics Class.
That's pretty much it. Please feel free to comment or ask questions.
