I’ve been working through the InterNACHI pre-licensure courses required for Tennessee (90 hours) since last Fall and I’m nearly done with just 3 classes remaining. For my state, I will need a passing score on the PSI Online exam before I can get setup with insurance and pay/apply for my state license.
Before trying to tackle my first inspection on my own, I think going on a few ride-alongs to shadow/assist experienced inspectors would be extremely valuable. I’m located just East of Nashville so if anybody in the area is willing to have me tag along I’d be grateful. We’re also looking at possibly moving out to Knoxville and we’re out that way every now and then so that could work too.
A bit about me: I’ve been active duty in the Air Force for the past 12 years and feel like it may be time to part ways with the military to try something different. I have experience doing residential framing and remodels so much of the InterNACHI training is material I’m already familiar with or otherwise naturally interested in learning about. I currently work pretty normal M-F schedule, although I do get a few down Mondays and have most weekends free. I’m also a strong proponent of on-the-job (OJT) training, which is something I feel the military has got right and excels in.
Please let me know if I missed anything- appreciate your time!
