But not one question actually determines one's inspection ability. If you have a lot of stuff, a website, not over weight, and have insurance you'll score reasonably high. Please tell me that if CMI comes to fruition that this is not the determining criteria.

I would say that knowledge of technical stuff isn’t all that good a determinator of compitence either. A good inspector needs:


Good observation skills.
Good communition skills (educate!).
Good writing skills. Narrative reports describe things.

Insurance. Gose without saying.

Experience, but more importantly, good experiences. an inspection is only as good as the client's experience. That is who we work for.

Applied Psychology. We need to be able to read people. Not only to determine is we are helping and not speaking over our client's heads' but also to be able to detect when a client is going to turn into a monster and turn on us.

'Be a people person'. If you can get people to like you, they are much more likely to listen to you, trust you and floow your recommendations (and therefore, steer clear of trouble!).

as a HI I once knew said, 'People don't sue their friends.'

Hope this helps.

26. About how many hours or continuing education have you earned in the last 12 months?

27. About how many continuing education hours have you earned in the past 3 years?

120 hours = 1920 + 235 hours = 470 = 2390 ![icon_eek.gif](upload://yuxgmvDDEGIQPAyP9sRnK0D0CCY.gif)

Must completely disagree there. E&O is a business and personal asset protection decision, period.

Also, what's a Gose? A small Goose? ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif) ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif)

Blaine. I respectfully disagree.


E & O insurance, as well as General Liability and Fidelity bondging also protect ant referring party (Realtor, Lawyer, mortgage broker) from suit for the inspector's actions. You know as well as I do that when a lawsuit happens, the lawyers try to include ANYONE who could possibley have anything to do with the transaction.

Sure, I want to protect my assets, but this is what I tell my clients, first thing (both when we meet and when they are trolling for a price).

"My first job is to protect you (client) from me (inspector). I do this by carrying insurance. This means that if I mess up (and I have't yet), you are protected from the consiquecenses of my error. If I miss a defect and it winds up costing you a lot of money, if I break a window on the sellers house or if something goes missing from the house during the inspection, you (client) are covered. But, like all forms of protection and insurance, this costs a little more."

They usually apprieciate this and see me in a MUCH more professiona light for it.

Just my opinion, how I do business.

No use anyone hireing me AND incuring liability from my actions.
