Well, between Gerry and Robert, you’ve answered my question clearly (between all the ribbing).
I wanted to be sure that I did not need thousands of dollars in tools
and equipment to start out my inspection.
The basic tools you listed are perfect for me.
Gerry, you mention ride alongs. I've emailed other NACHI inspectors
here in Michigan (about 50 miles away or more).
There seems to be some hesitation in letting me ride along.
Can any one shed any "serious" light on the subject?
Should I offer to pay them. (I'm losing my job next week so
will not be able to pay anything yet)
I've offered to do the grunt work. Still no takers.
I'm looking at attending one of several training centers.
AHIT has a class starting right here in Michigan.
Maybe after my course work, I'll be more lucky in getting a few ride alongs.
Thanks again to everyone for their information on the required tools.
