Is interNACHI training good?


Recommended Posts

I don't think I would waste my time getting any formal training.  Join interNACHI and do their online stuff.  Get a screw driver, flashlight, inspection app for your phone, card processing app and a couple Facebook ads.  If you do the aforementioned you will be doing us a favor and we will not have to waste our time answering your  ill conceived questions.  "This business is so easy even a cave man can do it."

Sarcastic or no?

By now I know you a little, and I suspect you'll be more comfortable around interNACHI folks so, henceforth please direct any additional questions to them.

Ok. Are they different or subpar or something?

I took the online classes from InterNACHI for my 90 hours of “classroom” training for Indiana licensing, but it was more out of convenience. I passed the NHIE first try with a mid 80’s score. I attribute that to my background in the trades. I’ve heard of others failing the test multiple times after taking their course.

Do you think you would have passed it if you hadn't taken that 90 hour course?

Lots of fellas fail that test repeatedly, regardless of where they may have gotten their 90 hours. That 90 hours does not come from the EBPHI, the creators of the NHIE, it comes from state regulatory requirements.

A pre-licensing class that takes it's cue from the NHIE's preparatory manuals is going to be a lot longer than 90 hours. I don't think anyone offers one yet. Few would buy it when cheaper 90 hour courses abound.

Home inspection stands alone. Its not a subset of a larger profession. Proficiency in any other profession does not guarantee that you will excel in home inspection. For that reason, the best inspectors are self trained. It's the only way.

The 90 hours prepared me for a certificate of completion from Internachi. I studied separately for the NHIE. I can only attest from my experience in answering the OP’s question.
