I have completed my 80 hours of home inspection classroom training and am waiting on my certificate in the mail. I have passed my ASHI Standards of Practice and Ethics exam. I have not passed the NHIE and am learning that the training I have received is not sufficient enough to pass the NHIE. I need advice on what I need to study to pass the NHIE and do I have to pass the NHIE before I can start inspecting to make money. Is it true that, if I join InterNACHI, I can start inspecting while taking additional courses to become “certified” to operate in my state of Arkansas? Or, do I have to be licensed by my state first (by passing the NHIE) and then join InterNACHI to become certified later?
Thanks to all who can help.
