Looking to earn your Hawaii home inspector license? Hawaii is one of roughly 20 states that still have not adopted licensing requirements for home inspectors.
In states that have licensing requirements for home inspectors, real estate agents and your clients just want to see that you are licensed. In states like Hawaii that do not have licensing requirements, real estate agents and your clients will want to see that you have been trained and certified in home inspection.
There are only a handful of places in the world where the real estate market thrives no matter the larger economic outlook. One such place? Hawaii. The gorgeous locale draws tourists and transplants 12 months a year, many of whom are hoping to purchase their dream home on one of the islands. To facilitate these sales, quality home inspectors are needed.

Hawaii’s Home Inspection Requirements
Hawaii has yet to adopt any formal requirements for local home inspectors. Of course, realtors and their clients will typically only work with experienced, certified inspectors.
