Claude and Bill should be made to publicly address "all NHICC card holding members " including PHPIC & ENIEB and by issuing a press release with a full formal apology.
A public section of their website should directly address any miss stated representation so there is no misunderstanding of what has been less than truthful promotion from a body promoting itself as a quasi public authority with high standards.
Since they play fast and loose with facts it calls into question other aspects of NHICC and PHPIC.
NHICC/PHPIC were not and are not compliant with SSC standards - CAN P9.
This has been confirmed by Standards Council Canada who have issued formal requests to have the erroneous statements removed.
Formerly NHICC stated openly and from day one on their website the following, which since has been updated recently due to complaints to Standards Council of Canada, and ICE - Institute for Credentialing Excellence.
In addition, all roles and responsibilities related to the NCP explicitly
aligned to CAN-P-9 criteria (ISO certification) /or alternatively ICE - NCCA accredited.
The status of all former “certificate holders” (Now National Home
Inspectors™), Candidates, and accredited course providers would revert to
that existing model prior to abolition, thus reducing the hardship on
The NHICC has established that its By-Laws, Policies and Procedures that mirror CAN-P-9/ICE compliance.
It also seeks additional accreditation with organizational ties that align with ISO Accreditation.
However the recruitment arm of PHPIC continues to be in breach by continuance of promoting false facts.
Standards Council of Canada has informed them to remove the erroneous statements as well.
But at this point in time PHPIC is not in abeyance.
No other Canadian professional home inspection association can match the credentials of a PHPIC inspector.
PHPIC’s, PHPI™ inspectors are the only Canadian Home Inspectors who have received accreditation through an independent certification body.
PHPIC is the only Canadian Home and Property Inspection Association that is in reasonable compliance with the Standards
Council of Canada, CAN-P-9 criteria.
NHICC also misrepresented talks with CSA, this too created a storm of controversy and again NHICC was taken to task for embellishments which upon further investigation and discussions with CSA turned out to be a continuance of exaggerations.
Ditto statements about NHICC and the Institute for Credentialing Excellence - ICE.
Many of us are fed up with NHICC/PHPIC setting rules they themselves don’t abide by will continue to monitor NHICC/PHPIC for inappropriate misleading statements, and will continue to inform the appropriate overseeing bodies should NHICC/PHPIC fall short of quality characteristics of their professional commitment and to ensure its credibility are sound and reliable.
