New here, some questions:
I was at the OAHI site, the CAHPI, and InterNACHI, and they all seem to have different terms used to grant a qualification on whomever successfully completes their course.
To my understanding, there is no absolute, government mandated minimum requirement to become a home inspector, correct?
InterNACHI, and I’m assuming the other providers, are making moves to get Ontario, and well as other Provinces and States, to the point where their governments have an actual minimum standard?
Eventually this will be regulated, at that point, say another service such as OAHI ‘wins’, will this make an InterNACHI certificate void at that point?
What’s the difference between, certified, licensed, and registered?
“Currently, anyone can offer home inspection services in Ontario, but only **registered **members of the Ontario Association of Home Inspectors can call themselves a registered home inspector.”
- Any other information for a potential new home inspector, in regards specifically to Canada/Ontario?
- I am also interested in doing Inspections for New Construction. Does anybody have any advice on where to start there?
