Hi to all,
the following is also being released on several other industry message boards tonight, before we take it back in house (with added features)for our members only use.
Hi to all,
Ok, now bear with me this is a little unusual, NACHI has long been criticized over its current entrance exam and is used by many outside of our organization to belittle its members as being some what ?lesser? inspectors than others.
Our current entry level exam is nothing more than that, a base line that we use to admit new members and new inspectors into our ranks, even within our own organization many members have commented on this, and have asked for something more meaningful
We have been working on new exams for quite a while, having designed protocols to support a better exam, and contrary to what some believe writing hundreds of questions from scratch, this new exam will not replace our current entry level exam, but will perhaps in future be the equivalent of NHIE or other organizations higher level exams.
This is currently in a ?BETA? test format and I have some bells and whistles to add to it but before I do so I wanted inspectors outside of our organization to see what we are up to.
I am going to make this exam available to anyone who wishes to take it, NACHI member or not for a limited period of time, it is a great tool for analyzing an inspectors weaknesses and I hope that many find taking it educational.
Anyone who has previously taken NACHI?s on-line exam can log on to this exam using their existing username and password, anyone who has not availed themselves of this opportunity previously can register to take the new exam by clicking this link:

I am doing this as part of our final beta testing, and welcome any and all constructive criticism, please let me know what you all think.
BTW, this exam has 100 questions drawn off a larger pool, and is designed to mirror various state licensing exams, I would expect that it should take about 1 hour to complete.
