On April 4, 2019 Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed House Bill 433 to establish a home inspection licensing law in the state of New Mexico. The New Mexico Home Inspector Licensing Board will require all home inspectors to earn their license after July 15, 2021.
To get started inspecting homes and earn your license in New Mexico follow these steps:
Step 1: Complete the 80 Hour ICA home inspection training course. Our online course meets the 80 hour requirement in accordance with chapter 66 of the NM Home Inspector Rules.
Step 2: Take and pass the national home inspector examination (NHIE). We fully prepare all of our home inspection students for this exam and provide a 200 page online study guide along with 700 practice questions.
Step 3: Complete an inspection log with 30 parallel home inspections in New Mexico.
Step 4: Start your own home inspection business or go to work for an existing New Mexico home inspection company!
We not only help you get licensed we help you supercharge your career and business with everything you need to be successful. ICA’s membership portal, Edcetera Home Inspection, provides you with ongoing support and training resources throughout your career. New students who enroll in a home inspection licensing course with ICA receive a one-year membership for free, a $99 value!
ICA students may upgrade to Spectora home inspection software as part of our exclusive partnership – or use Report Form Pro Nitro software, which is included in our home inspection training at no charge.
