Licensing Training and State Exam:
To become a license home inspector, New Jersey requires that “ a home inspector has successfully completed an approve course of study ( live class ) of 180 hours which shall include not less than 40 hours of unpaid field-based inspections in the presence of and under the conduct supervision of a license home inspector, which inspections shall be provided by the school providing the approve course of study. unfortunately, the NJ Advisory Committee does not recognize on-line college courses for home inspector license. Visit the New Jersey web site for license details.
We highly recommend submitting to the NJ Advisory Committee a conventional request to complete an equivalent Home Inspector Certificate Program provided by a nationally-accredited college ( internachi.edu ), because at this time in-person know classes may be closed, restricted, not safe adequate, besides financially burdensome, or just not available. Feel free to include education @ internachi.org in the electronic mail therefore that we may assist with your request. InterNACHI ‘s Home Inspector Certificate Program ( release and on-line for members ) is equivalent to the 180-hour pre-licensing education required by NJ. View the college program
