It is a very straightforward process to become a licensed home inspector in the State of Texas
Steps to become a licensed home inspector in Texas:
- Complete an approved 448 hour home inspection course or perform 250 supervised home inspections. Note: Texas is one of just a few states that requires classroom home inspection training. Unfortunately the state of Texas does not accept any online home inspection training courses to meet their home inspection training requirements. This means the Inspection Certification Associates online home inspection training course is not approved to fulfill the 448 hour pre-licensing training requirement.
- Take and pass the National Home Inspectors Exam. If you need help passing the National Home Inspectors Exam we suggest this exam prep app – https://homeinspectionform.com/exam-prep/
- Start your own home inspection business or go to work for an existing home inspection company!
