Well, here it is. I received a reply from JVI today in response to the email I sent them (which I posted at the beginning of this thread. Again, I am not looking to prostitute myself. I was signed up by Allied American at one stage because they were looking for 75 inspectors to do wind mitts in central florida and in 18 months (after paying for trainiing attending their orientation down near Naples) I have not received any leads.
Anyway, here is the emial.

You are correct. At this time, Citizens will not allow HI’s to perform re-inspections. In addition to the re-inspections, we also provide private wind mitigation and other services such as 4point, mold, Chinese drywall and more that we could potentially use you for.
The $55 fee is only for the Citizens re-inspections. For all of JVI’s private wind mit inspections that we receive, the fee to the inspector is $66. Citizens pays Inspection Depot $125 not JVI. We try to be as fair as we possibly can be with our fees but there are also many costs associated with managing and reviewing each inspection report prior to sending it out to the homeowner.
I wish that I could guarantee you a particular number of inspections per day but I cannot. Currently, the majority of our inspections are down in the southeast region of the state however it can change without notice. We are continually seeking new clients to offer our services to and are working to eventually expand to a nationwide level.
The insurances required are set by Citizens and only apply to the re-inspection program. Outside of the program, JVI only requires the $1million GL policy.
What I try to explain to inspectors interested in working with JVI is that by joining our roster, you give yourself the opportunity to receive additional work that you do not have to market and that will help act as a supplement to your current business. By working with JVI, you always have the option to accept or decline any inspection sent to you, and you also have the right to work with anyone else that you see fit while also working with JVI. You are not bound to only working with JVI.
Ultimately the decision is up to you. We are continually searching for qualified individuals that would like to team up with us. If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to assist you.
