Looking to be an intern

I’m looking to see if there is anyone in the Sarasota to Punta Gorda area that may or want to take on an internship or just wanna help me with going around and learning your techniques and experience. I am still taking the course with 9 to go so I just want to get out and be in the field and learn. Thanks in advance.

Michael, 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: Find a Certified Master Inspector®

And the link for CPIs: Find Certified Home Inspectors Near You - InterNACHI®

And Mentors: Home Inspector Mentoring - InterNACHI® and InterNACHI® - International Association of Certified Home Inspectors

Also, you may want to take advantage of your Education Team at education@internachi.org for specific questions e.g. 15 Steps to Become a Successful Home Inspector - InterNACHI® and InterNACHI® Master Class for Home Inspectors .

And there is the Helpful How-To Videos - InterNACHI® for many other things. And the InterNACHI online education page: How do I navigate the InterNACHI online education page? | InterNACHI FAQ

P.S. Welcome to our forum. Enjoy!

I am an internachi member. I’m just trying to finish up the course so I can take my test and move on to becoming an inspector.

Read the links above that Larry provided.

You can reach out directly to certified inspectors in your area. Email them and ask if you can participate in inspections.
