N.A.C.H.I. (THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CERTIFIED HOME INSPECTORS)
TO PROVIDE BEST-OF-BREED SERVICES TO HOME INSPECTORS
Tuesday, 19 April 2005
HICB is the Home Inspectors? Community Board, a Virtual Institute website for the new and rapidly growing profession of Home Inspection. It provides all the services of a traditional trade association:
? Helping its members to find more work
? Promoting professionalism and best practice
? Providing ongoing training and education
? Offering a meeting place for practitioners who might otherwise not meet face to face
It is owned and managed by Dynamictrade, the supplier of online professional services trading platforms.
NACHI is the world?s largest trade association for Home Inspectors, based in Valley Forge PA, USA; but represented in over 40 countries worldwide. It provides services to Home Inspectors worldwide, including:
? A Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice for Home Inspectors.
? Ongoing educational resources and examinations for HI professionals.
? Listings of Home Inspectors.
? Meetings for local regional chapters around the world.
Under the terms of the partnership, HICB and NACHI will co-operate to bring new services to Home Inspectors throughout the UK. By joining InterNACHI, NACHI?s international partner programme, HICB will provide local support in the UK for NACHI?s tried-and-tested support programme for Home Inspectors worldwide.
Key benefits to Home Inspectors will include:
? Free services from NACHI as applied to the UK market, available exclusively through HICB
? An annual UK National Home Inspector Conference and Trade Fair,
? NACHI will sponsor and enhance The Home Inspector Channel, HICB?s on-line video streamed learning channel
? Home Inspection report writing software ? tailored for the UK market
Michael Carlish, HICB Director says ?The Home Inspection profession is very new in the UK, as legislation supporting it has only recently been passed. Elsewhere in the world, Home Inspectors naturally turn to NACHI for support, and HICB is proud to increase NACHI?s footprint into the UK. We have been there through the nascent profession?s gestation period, and nobody is better placed than HICB to bring NACHI?s support services to Home Inspectors in the UK?.
NACHI COO Nick Gromicko says ?We look forward to working with HICB as we expand into the U.K.?
