Being that I am studying to become a home inspector I’m a little bit concerned about this as well. I just received an email talking about this “Curriculum of Experience” and InterNACHI®️ is only under “Qualifying Education”.
I’m currently completing the 86 hours of the Pre-Licensing Course for the “80 hours of Qualifying Education” requirement but it appears only Hondros College is the only one that will assist me with passing the qualification of a “Curriculum of Experience” .
If possible I’d like to see an update about this and how InterNACHI®️ can help me get these qualification requirements out the door and keep the ball rolling to get my Ohio license. It’s understood that these regulations and laws were just implemented but existing and future home inspectors need to know.
The requirements of the application for Ohio licensure are here (Section 4764.07 - Ohio Revised Code | Ohio Laws).
Please review and we anticipate your answer.
Edit: For clarification the “Curriculum of Experience” requirement it appears that this need must be met as stated via the FAQ in the email sent.
Q: What kind of experience do I need to obtain for a home inspector license?
A: There are two kinds of experience and you will only need to obtain one type of experience. You will obtain either ten (10) parallel inspections OR you will need to complete a curriculum of experience AND a peer review.
Edit: It appears InterNACHI®️ is listed as an organization that is able to conduct a peer review along with the 40 hours of inspection as listed as a experience requirement via the application for the Ohio Home Inspector License.
I have successfully completed the experience requirements established in Ohio Revised Code Section 4764.05(D)(6) by completing one (1) of the following:
(Please indicate which requirement has been completed by checking the appropriate box below.)
❑ Successfully completed forty (40) hours of work in home inspection within twelve (12) months prior to the date of this application and have successfully completed one (1) peer review session
Further down we have this entry of:
• Peer reviews must have been completed within 12 months of the date of this application.
• Provide copy of certificate of completion awarded by organization sponsoring the peer review.
Date Of Inspection Date Certificate Awarded Organization Conducting Peer Review
❑ ASHI ❑ InterNACHI
And it only has 5 entries to report the homes inspected. Which directly combats the requirement of “obtaining” ten (10) parallel inspections with peer review.
Using deductive, albeit hopeful, reasoning I can only assume that the requirement of completing forty (40) hours of work in home inspection within twelve (12) months prior to the date of this application and have successfully completed one (1) peer review session can be completed via the “mock” inspections required for InterNACHI®️ Certification.
I’ll be awaiting a reply.
