I apologize for my absence from the message board these last 3 or 4 weeks.
My husband, Dennis had a triple bypass and is now home.
Modern medicine is a true miracle. Triple by pass on Thursday and home by Monday….
Although he is doing great - he will be out of commission for at least 4 weeks….
There have been several issues that need clarification: - Lots of VERY bad and dangerous information floating around out there.
Ist Subject –
If you are a Licensed Home Inspector and have at least 3 hours of training with a proficiency exam – You have been qualified to perform these inspections since July 1, 2010.
The September 22nd Meeting with the Department of Finance Office of Insurance Regulations (OIR) supported this affect.
Yes – there is a revised form coming – yes there will be several options you will each and every one have to be on “ LISTS”. They are not affective until they are posted.
But if you have your Home Inspections License and have proof of at least 3 hours of education – today right now – you qualify.
If you are NOT a Licensed Home Inspector and simply have a Contractor or Engineer signing off on your reports – you are playing with FIRE!!! Stop NOW!!
You must be a direct (W-2) employee of that Contactor or Engineer. That means a W-2 employee!!
I have no monitory gain in telling you this. I only have the interest of your care – as this directly affects you ability to obtain and maintain your Home Inspection License.
***Citations ARE ***being issued for fraud under Statue 489.127 for Home Inspectors – then they go after the Contactors (or Engineers) thru the DBPR.
Bill York’s OIR 1802 Class.
I personally negotiated a Hugh discount for Florida Inter NACHI members to receive a $40 discount to attend this class. There are only 2 sites approved for this discount. I couldn’t get this for all 1300 Inter NACHI Members- so I did the best I could.
. This class is NOT REQUIRED!!!
It does not take the place of the InterNACHI Wind Mit training – it enhances it.
Bill York’s class specifically targets the OIR 1802 Form, what information Must be provided and targets how and what to take substantiating photos of.
Attending this class is extremely valuable if you intend to perform Wind Mitigation inspections and you have no formal training about the’ OIR 1802 FORM”
It is NOT required. It has NO CE value. Its just a really &**&% good class. This along with the InterNACHI Wind MIT course available for free at www.NACHI.org prepares you to provide and perform Wind Mits that will have no rejections.
The only thing I did was get Florida InterNACHI a great discount.
The State of Florida Exam via Pearson Vue:
This exam is valuable for General Licensing ONLY!!!
It is not recognized or honored by any association. PERIOD!!
This exam costs $225.00! Do Not Take This Exam unless you are an inexperienced inspector who will be pursuing licensing based on education only or by general licensing.
If you have taken the Pearson Vue exam and obtained your license purely upon completion of this exam – and are not a member of a National or State association who required you take a proctored exam - please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
