Newbie looking for ride along in Bakersfield, CA

Newly certified and am looking for someone to ride along with on a few inspections. Wanting to do inspections on a part time basis until we relocate to the east coast. Would really like to work part time for an established inspection company if any are looking for help in the Bakersfield, Ca area.

Hi Mark, welcome. Larry will likely be by shortly with some helpful information for you.


Mark, you may want to contact some CMIs or CPIs within 40 to 50 miles, or closer, to your area and communicate with them. Maybe one, or more, will help you. Some inspectors feel as though they are training their competition by ride-alongs or mentoring or hiring.

Here is the link for CMIs: Find a Certified Master Inspector®

And the link for CPIs: Find Certified Home Inspectors Near You - InterNACHI®

And Mentors: Home Inspector Mentoring - InterNACHI® and InterNACHI® - International Association of Certified Home Inspectors

Also, you may want to take advantage of your Education Team at for specific questions e.g. 15 Steps to Become a Successful Home Inspector - InterNACHI® and InterNACHI® Master Class for Home Inspectors . And there is the new training cards app Chris Morrell, our CEO, offers: New training app for home inspectors

And there is the Helpful How-To Videos - InterNACHI® for many other things.

And, read the forum for much information.

P.S. Welcome to our forum. Enjoy!
