Why Is National Association Membership Important?

Some states require membership in a non-profit national home inspector association as a condition for licensing and practice. Alabama, Pennsylvania, North Dakota and Maryland, for example, require home inspectors to maintain membership in a national home inspector association that maintains ethical standards. In Pennsylvania, the law requires home inspectors to be a full member of a national association to be compliant and perform home inspections in the state. 

In addition, national associations must be nonprofit. The National Society of Home Inspectors (NSHI) is one of only a few that meet that requirement. Another is NAHI, the National Association of Home Inspectors.

 PHII is proud to be the only school that provides a free paid membership in two national non-profit home inspector associations upon graduation from the course. 

All PHII graduates receive:
  • a paid 1-year $199 membership in NSHI (National Society of Home Inspectors)
  • a paid 6-month $199 membership in NAHI (National Association of Home Inspectors)
