Continuing Education Requirement for Members:
InterNACHI’s Continuing Education requirement for members is very straightforward: twenty-four (24) hours of acceptable Continuing Education per year (based upon the date you joined) are required to maintain InterNACHI membership. InterNACHI membership is based upon the day you join. There are two exceptions:
- New Members: New members are not required to complete any Continuing Education within the first calendar year after they join InterNACHI. For example: A new member who joins InterNACHI on July 1, 2016, needs to complete 24 hours of Continuing Education by July 1, 2018 (two years after they join as a new member).
- 24 Rollover Hours: A member may apply a maximum of twenty-four (24) additional CE hours (“rollover hours”) to the following year only. For example, if a member completes 30 hours of CE in one particular year, that member has 6 rollover CE hours hours to apply to the following year. For another example, if a member completes 50 hours of CE in one particular year, that member has a maximum of 24 rollover CE hours to apply to the following year only.
Warning to Consumers:
Unlike other home inspection associations, InterNACHI front-ends many of its certification requirements and requires that its members take many courses and examinations after joining. In other words, all of our certified members must fulfill certification requirements before they can become certified. Other associations have few or no entrance requirements, and encourage their members and associates to go out and perform hundreds of unqualified inspections for poor, unsuspecting consumers.
