Mentor for ride along

Hi. My name is Manuel Montes. I’m working on becoming a new home inspector. I live in Stockton, California and I’m looking for an experienced inspector that wouldn’t mind me riding along on a few weekend inspections.
I work as a full time electrician during the week. I’m willing to drive to you for both days of the weekend.
I’m willing to shadow with no questions asked if necessary. I don’t want to be a bother or slow you down.
I appreciate your time and consideration.

Please call me at 209-981-2884

Thank you.

Manuel, 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®
