With all due respect, you seem to be extremely confused and conflicted by a program that you are going to be in charge of.
You seem to be changing "the already established rules and regulations."
You have already brought in Jeff H. and put him is a position of power. This is a man who hates and despises NACHI and has publically stated his hatred.
His presence will only serve to polarise and divide the CMI program.
This act of self sabotage and destruction is bewildering to me.
I think that until you answer the many questions posed to you already by Home Inspectors who are both for and against the CMI program that you should not invite comments and or draw criticism for “outsiders.”
Right now, it would appear, Mike R. the vendor and Mike R. the president, are having a bit of a struggle in trying to decide which end of the horse to tie the cart to. Perhaps another half dozen threads will do the trick.
If even 51% are members of NACHI how could you put this person in a position of power!
His comments want me to stay as far away from this CMI program as possible.

As a matter of fact his presence by its self is a HUGE endorsement for all NACHI members to stay away.
Nachi will allow anyone to be a member and will not do anything. Nachi and tricky Nick will do anything. They are a discrace to the professional inspection world.** If you are a member, then you too are part of the problem as you enable this lieing association to exist.** Wake up and smell the coffee. Get real.
I was a member of that piece of @#$% org once. Too bad for me.
Jeff G Hooper
It took me 5 years for one of my professional licenses and 4 for the other. An additional 5 years for all of my ICC and SBCCI certifications.** I am so glad when I see someone leave that crap org. I cannot tell you**. My 27 years against their 3. Bull****.
I have had enough of Nachi and I will do everything in my power to see to it they are not a part of Florida. Believe it or not, I am winning down here. **I have convinces out state that they are the reason we need regulation. **
I am on my way out of FABI as this is my last term. I do not care if I go down in flames. I will fight to protect the class act inspectors that cannot speak. I will fight to protect the real inspectors that care about their customers.
[size=2].If that was to happen those not in NACHI would have no idea on what CMI stands for .[/size]
[size=2] CMI is for all experienced Home Inspectors who have earned the privledge to be a CMI .[/size]

He’s got Hooper already on board…but so far, there are very few takers on the idea of a “peer review board” for Hoopy to “put together”.
If CMI became an education level, denoting training that was “above and beyond” what the average inspector had…there would be no need for political influence or even dues.
As for experience being considered, one need only present a resume to an education provider to receive education credits for life experiences…having them placed on a transcript, and be done with it. No need for audits, second guessing, association bias, or the rest of the crap that Hoopy represents.
A single CMI standard that all education providers had to meet would then put all providers on equal ground and would put them in a position where they would compete for our business. Competition in this area would be good for us, ensuring the best to offer would be coming our way.
It is natural for the current president, an education provider, to balk at this idea…but it seems to serve as an alternative that addresses most of the issues now facing the program.
CMI’s current formula was designed so that only 5% of our industry would qualify. The top 5% of any profession would be considered masters. But I over estimated the number of jobs an inspector does per year by about 30% and overestimated the average life expectancy of a practicing inspector by about a year. This resulted in the current formula representing only 3% of our industry, not 5%.
