Virginia goes to licensing July 1. Anyone certified prior to that will be grandfathered in.
Also, regulations regarding new residential structure inspections become effective. Home inspectors not carrying the NRS designation cannot perform inspections on new construction. Anyone wishing to perform inspections on new construction must pass a module of training to gain the designation, and of course pay a fee I’m sure.
Nachi doing any work to get training approval for the new construction?
The training module is going to be code based.
Here is a copy of the latest draft I could find. Along with the information regarding the licensing and NRS endorsement, there is a disclosure section that bears reading.
