I’m just getting started, I passed the NACHI certification test, and I’m finishing up the twelve required first year courses. A local inspector nearing retirement has agreed to discuss mentoring me. It would be great if I could help him transition out of the business as I transition in.
Are there any thoughts or guidelines for an equitable process? Should I pay him for shadowing him? How much?
Should I consider working with him to “take over” the business? How can I estimate the value of his business, and should I do that, or just set myself up with my own identity?
Any thoughts appreciated.
