We also offer several in-person educational opportunities and webinars.
Jumpstart Your Business
Running a successful home inspection business requires more than just inspecting homes. ASHI provides its members access to important documents, files, and assets that can help build a solid foundation for business operations.
Stay Within Budget
Every business has overhead costs, but ASHI members can take advantage of the ASHI Discount Program, which provides discounts and special rates on various business costs necessary for operating and maintaining a home inspection business.
Become an ACI
ASHI members are encouraged to aim for the highest level of membership, ASHI Certified Inspector (ACI), which is validated by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).
Support Your Team
ASHI's Multi-Inspector Program offers discounted dues rates for teams of inspectors, and a direct representative from the ASHI Membership team can help tailor ASHI’s services to meet their needs.
ASHI's dues give members exceptional value by granting them access to a wealth of benefits, services, and opportunities to help them grow and excel in their home inspection businesses. ASHI keeps its membership dues affordable to provide exceptional value to its members. ASHI membership offers numerous advantages and opportunities, making the cost of dues minimal compared to the significant long-term benefits.
ASHI offers two payment options:
Membership Dues Refund Policy
The ASHI Board of Directors approved a membership dues refund policy that applies to all new and renewing members who seek to cancel their membership and request a refund of their membership dues and associated fees. There are no membership dues or fee refunds except for multi-inspectors. Exceptions to this policy require approval by the Membership Director or the Executive Director.
Refund for members sponsored by multi-inspector companies before 90 days. When a multi-inspector company pays membership fees on behalf of a member, the company will only receive a refund if the company or the individual requests that their membership be canceled, and a refund issued. If the membership is not canceled before 90 days, there will be no refund. The member may renew their membership as an individual.
Refund Process: To request a refund, members must contact ASHI at firstname.lastname@example.org. The request must include the following information:
- Full Name, address, and email
- Membership ID (if applicable)
- Reason for the refund request
- Relevant documentation (if required)
Review and Approval The ASHI Membership Department will review and process all refund requests within ten business days of receiving the request.
