Home Inspection Requirements in Wisconsin
The process of becoming a licensed home inspector is a bit different in Wisconsin than in most other states.
To become a home inspector in the state of Wisconsin, you must complete the following steps:
- Complete 40 hours of education with a recognized continuing education provider. ICA’s Wisconsin Home Inspector Course satisfies this requirement completely.
- Upon completion of the class, you’ll need to take and pass the Wisconsin Home Inspection Statutes & Rules Exam. This 50-question test can be taken online and a score of 85 or higher is required to pass.
- Finally, you’ll need to take the National Home Inspectors Exam. Our online test preparation materials have all you need to pass the exam on your first attempt.
Wisconsin home inspection requirements might seem challenging at first glance, but ICA’s library of resources help simplify the process so you don’t have to stress.
