NACHI EDUCATION ? LEADING THE WAY
4 August 2005
?Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.? Vernon Sanders Law.
In the words of past Executive Director, Nick Gromicko, ?Members of the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors (NACHI) are the most educated and best trained inspectors in the world.? I personally pledge NACHI?s commitment to keeping it that way. Recently, NACHI has raised the bar towards that end by: Increasing our continuing education requirements from 18 to 24 hours per year; Establishing on-line courses (with several more in the wings); Steadily increasing and strengthening our Chapter education programs; Reinstating our ?Free? NACHI Library; Increasing our convention education hours; and expanding our courses and tests to colleges and universities throughout the U.S.
In February 2005, the position of NACHI Director of Professional Development was established. Mr. Joe Farsetta was afforded and accepted this position. The NACHI Education Committee, Awards Committee, and Major Events Coordinator were strategically placed within the organization chart under the Director of Professional Development. This move was precipatated by the need for coordination and communication amongst the three committees. This reorganization is proving to be a resounding success. The above mentioned programs and accomplishments have all come to fruition since February of 2005. In addition to these, future benefits, programs, and educational offerings are either in place or are being researched. For example, NACHI has been approved in several states as an approved continuing education provider and several states now accept NACHI?s on-line exam as qualification for their state requirement.
NACHI?s commitment to the Home Inspection Industry is second to none. We are leading the way in marketing, education and support of our members which in turn fulfills our duty to the home-buying public.
