Washington State Home Inspector Training

By
Home Inspector with King of the House Home Inspection, Inc

Things will be changing in Washington State, now that a home inspector licensing law has been passed and signed by the Governor. The way it will all come out, ultimately, is going to be determined to a large degree by the home inspector licensing board. At this point, while generally established, the specifics on the education and testing are not formalized. However, one thing is certain. That is that the more training and experience one has, he or she is in a stronger position to meet all of the requirements when the law gets in full swing about a year and a half from now. For anyone interested in getting into the field, one of the few state accredited home inspection training programs is geared to startup in Bellingham, at Bellingham Technical College,  on March 31. This is an intense four-week program that has been in existence for more than a decade. Anyone interested in this, or who would like to pass on the information, can check out the BTC website.

Steven,

Meet a few I thought needed to be retrained and I have worked with a few that were excellent.  All the laws are changing and I think that is good for the buyers.
