The ASHI offers board certification as a Certified Inspector. Board certification is granted in recognition of an applicant's documented experience and successful completion of the National Home Inspector Examination (NHIE).
Explanation of the Certification Program
The ASHI Certified Inspector (ACI) program promotes excellence within the home inspector profession as well as continual improvement of ACI's services to the public. The ASHI certification program establishes a minimum and uniform standard of practice for home inspectors practicing in the United States and Canada. Home inspection professionals offer a vital service to the public in evaluating the condition of a prospective home. Home Inspections performed to ASHI Standards of Practice are intended to provide the client with objective information regarding the condition of the systems and components of the home as inspected at the time of the home inspection.
