On The Job Training

This is my first forum so I am not sure how this works.

I recently just completed my courses online here at Internachi. I am in the military and plan to get out and become a home inspector in Hampton Roads VA. However, in the state of VA I have to do 25 home inspections before I can test. The problem is I am not sure how to find someone who will let me go around with them or sign off on my inspections without signing a one year non-compete clause. How do I work with this?
