I recently became a NYS certified and licensed Home Inspector and wish to expand by certification and services. Termite Inspection is the first thing I wish to do. I know that you do not need a license to do so, but I have heard that for me to issue the proper forms that can be used for the mortgage company, you do need to be certified.
The question is… I have purchased this course from AHIT and it comes from Purdue University. It was suggested that this course is not NYS approved for Termite inspection certification. Can anyone confirm or deny this rumer as they suggested that I should have investigated on this first and will not give me my money back in full.
Secondly…once the course is completed, where does one go to take the “test” needed to get the license number?
I have found it very difficult to find out any info on web and contacting the DEC takes me no where???
