Looking for Mentoring/Ride-Alongs in Portland Metro Area

I’m currently studying for the home inspector license exam in Oregon. I’d like to find some opportunities to do “ride-alongs” or shadow a mentor in the Portland Metropolitan area, but I’m having trouble finding anyone who is willing to get back in touch with me. Any ideas or help in this area?

Jesse, contact some CMIs or CPIs within 40 to 50 miles, or closer, to your area and communicate with them. Maybe one, or more, will help you. Some inspectors feel as though they are training their competition by ride-alongs or mentoring or hiring.

Here is the link for CMIs: https://certifiedmasterinspector.org/members

And the link for CPIs: https://www.nachi.org/certified-inspectors

And Mentors: https://www.nachi.org/mentoring

Also, you may want to take advantage of your Education Team at education@internachi.org for specific questions e.g. https://www.nachi.org/become-home-inspector.htm
