I am looking for an opportunity to shadow a Philadelphia-based inspector on a home inspection
Robert, contact some CMIs or CPIs within 40 to 50 miles, or closer, to your area and communicate with them. Maybe one, or more, will help you. Some inspectors feel as though they are training their competition by ride-alongs or mentoring or hiring.
Here is the link for CMIs: https://certifiedmasterinspector.org/members
And the link for CPIs: https://www.nachi.org/certified-inspectors
And Mentors: https://www.nachi.org/mentoring
Also, you may want to take advantage of your Education Team at email@example.com for these specific type of questions.
P.S. Welcome to our forum. Enjoy!
Thank you for this response. Makes sense and am mindful of the competition consideration.
