We can’t proctor attentiveness of the inspector at a continuing education course because the inspector can day dream through it, miss 30% of it, and still pass the quiz at the end.
We can’t proctor that the inspector is abiding by the Code of Ethics on each job.
We can’t proctor that the inspector is abiding by the SOP on each job.
We can’t proctor that he even goes to the inspection… he might just send his helper instead.
We can’t proctor that he checked the furnace, pulled the electric panel cover, or even went upstairs.
We can’t proctor that he has fresh flashlight batteries to inspect the attic.
We can’t proctor that he is sober on his inspections.
We can’t proctor anything.
Some states proctor a licensing exam that 65% pass. Of the many that pass they can still fail 30% of the exam and pass. Meaningless.
It is silly to focus on one link in a chain of weak links.
