What Makes NIBI® Certification Different Than Other Home Inspection Certification Programs

There is no one conventional education or job background that adequately prepares an individual to be a professional home inspector. A strong construction or engineering background is a plus, but it does not obviate the need for formal inspection training.

Surprisingly, some home inspection licensing and certification programs allow inspectors to perform inspections prior to ever having completed any formal inspection training on issues specifically related to home inspection.

As a NIBI® Certified Inspector, you’ll be able to verify for your customers that you have completed a formal home inspection course, passed qualifying exams, and have practice field experience.

What Other NIBI® Certified Home Inspectors Have to Say

I’ve used NIBI® Online Training as my go to source for inspector training for almost 2 decades.  It has allowed me to monitor the test results of my team and offer my team an in-depth resource for technical information.  Most importantly however is that it works.  My customers are happy because my inspectors are knowledgeable largely as result of their online NIBI® training.
