I am about half way through the education part of this endeavor and can not believe what I will be up against in trying to acquire the final license!!!
I have been in residential construction for 30+ years and got no relief through life experience in the business.
I also believe another organization is deparately protecting their turf and will make it very painfull for me, but profitable for their members, to acquire my license.
They are requiring 50 mentored inspections and 250 supervised inspections along with the 300 hours of classroom work!
Those in the business are asking for 50-100 for each mentored inspection and to get the 250 you are routinely asked to sign a 2 year contract!!!
The state has put us at the mercy of the existing inspectors who were granfatherd in and would like to control the new people in the business.
Would like anyones thoughts or help dealing with these issues.
By the way, I’m in South Jersey and would be glad to cross over into PA to begin my inspection career.
