Parallels prior to NHIE?

I live in Arizona and would like to know if I can do my 30 parallels prior to taking the NHIE?

Check with the AZ licensing board

I’m the Chairman of the Arizona Home Inspector Rules & Standards Committee and there are no requirements for which order you complete the requirements. I would suggest completing the 30 parallels after the classroom training and before the take the NHIE. My personal opinion only.

I have heard of some parallel providers that they require the person complete the classes and NHIE before they will take someone out. Be sure to ask.

Thank you for the information!

Never could understand why the term “parallels” is used in this situation.



  1. (of lines, planes, surfaces, or objects) side by side and having the same distance continuously between them.
