Nevada’s Home Inspection Regulations
To earn your Nevada home inspector license, you must first complete 60 hours of virtual online classroom training. No experience is necessary to start training—our Nevada Structural Inspection Pre-License Course teaches you everything you need to know. Next, you’ll need to pass the Nevada Inspector of Structures Exam. While sitting for such a test can be intimidating, we’re here to help with 700 practice exam questions included in your training. Upon passing the test, you’ll be required to observe 25 inspections performed by a certified Nevada home inspector. This observation period provides invaluable hands-on experience in the practical side of the profession. After completing these steps, you’ll be ready to start your own home inspection business or find a job at an existing inspection company.
Complete Required Education and Training
Some careers have a high barrier of entry, such as appraisal, requiring years in the classroom and thousands of dollars in tuition with no guarantee of a job at the end. Nevada home inspection training, on the other hand, presents a relatively low barrier to entry. Registration fees are just a fraction of the typical cost of vocational training, and you’ll learn the ropes in a matter of weeks, or even days. Even if you have no experience in the industry, you’ll find yourself mastering the fundamentals in no time.
Our 60-hour training course is designed to teach students everything they need to know about home inspection. This comprehensive course is offered by our sister company, PDH Academy, and can be completed as a live webinar or classroom course. This is an excellent option for all entry-level inspectors, providing a solid foundation of industry knowledge while laying a pathway to becoming a Nevada Certified Master Inspector.
Gain Practical Experience
After completing virtual online classroom training, novice inspectors must shadow a Nevada home inspector for 25 jobs. In addition to being a state requirement, this is one of the very best ways to learn the trade. While our coursework is certainly comprehensive, there’s something about rolling up your sleeves and seeing inspections first-hand that makes all your training click. During these observations, you’ll have the chance to ask questions and learn exactly how home inspections are performed. Learning from a more experienced inspector and seeing how your classroom training informs the reality of home inspection builds confidence in your own abilities.
Pass the Nevada Inspector of Structures Exam
Finally, all Nevada home inspectors must demonstrate their knowledge on the Inspector of Structures Exam. We know that standardized tests can be incredibly intimidating, so we offer all ICA School students our Home Inspector Exam Prep Course, featuring 700 questions that reflect the material on the actual exam, free of charge. Take the practice exam as many times as you want! Even if it’s been years since you last took a test, you’ll walk into your exam with total confidence.
Continuing Education Requirements for Licensed Home Inspectors
To maintain your Nevada home inspector license, you’ll need to renew your certification every two years by completing 20 hours of approved continuing education. Three hours must be dedicated to safety, two hours to Nevada law Chapter 645D, and 15 hours to general inspector courses.
