Massachusetts Home Inspector License Training: Everything You Need to Know.
Massachusetts home inspector license requirements are fairly straightforward. First, you must complete 75 hours of classroom training. Then, you’ll need to take and pass the National Home Inspectors Exam. Finally, you must complete 25 inspections under the direct supervision of a certified home inspector. Learning how to become a licensed home inspector in Massachusetts is easier than you might expect.
Steps to Obtain a Massachusetts Home Inspector License
Step One: Complete 75 hours of classroom training to become approved by the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Home Inspectors. The Inspection Certification Associates 75-hour, 8-day classroom course is approved to fulfill this requirement. See below for times and availability.
Step Two: Take and pass the National Home Inspectors Exam. We fully prepare all of our graduates for this by including a 200-page online study guide and 700 practice questions specific to the National Home Inspectors Exam.
Step Three: Complete 25 directly supervised inspections with a Massachusetts licensed home inspector. We can help with this. All graduates of the ICA Massachusetts home inspection licensing course receive a free one-month membership to InterNACHI, which provides new members an opportunity to connect with mentors who are licensed home inspectors and members of this association. After you complete 25 directly supervised inspections, your next 100 inspections will need to be indirectly supervised where your supervisor will review a copy of your reports for you.
