Since then there has been plenty of mud slinging on both sides. ASHI thinks we make it too easy and too cost effective to become a home inspector. We don't believe you have to be a engineer to become a home inspector. While those are great crudentials we like to keep it plain and simple.
Since that time ASHI has campaigned for the same restrictive legislation in other states under the disguise of consumer protection when in fact they only had their own interests in mind such as limiting competition, increasing their membership numbers by requiring licensing, etc....
This is a relatively small part of their membership that pushes for this. Most members of ASHI are divided on this issue. I don't see how the ASHI organization could ever think we would agree to them limiting the competition to ASHI members when their own members don't agree on it.
