I’m getting pretty tired of OAHI publicizing that their designation is the “only designation recognized by the Ontario government”. This is a slap in the face of all who inspect in Ontario and never felt like paying out the @ss for the meaningless title of Registered Home Inspector (RHI) from a bankrupt association with barely a footprint in the Ontario inspection industry in terms of membership. Its basically a nice way of saying-“you dont pay us, so you’re a fraud. Buyer beware he isn’t a Registered Home Inspector!” Yes, the government recognized the title for their members. Yippy. It should not be touting itself as the governing body of all of us. Or the only one that matters or is “legit” in the industry. This week alone I had to explain to 3 potential clients what InterNACHI is and what OAHI isn’t. If I haven’t been booking 2 a day for the last 3 weeks I’d be infuriated. But wasting time to explain this to the public is trying my patience. I have no issue educating anyone who has a question about this industry. Ever. But, this whole “RHI is the only real deal” thing needs to be squashed.
Nick, you conquered ASHI now PLEASE help out your over 650 Ontario NACHI Home Inspectors. Those in the biz know what InterNACHI represents. But maybe it’s time the public knew too!
