ASHI offers you the resources and opportunities to become a better and more successful home inspector at both the national and local levels. The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), founded in 1976, is North America’s oldest and most respected professional society of home inspectors. ASHI’s goals have always been to build customer awareness of the importance of a quality home inspection and enhance the professionalism of home inspectors. ASHI offers both new and existing home inspectors resources at the national and local level through the 80 plus ASHI chapters. The national education offerings include: on-line “Smart Track” Education, Practice Home Inspection Examinations, a vibrant Discussion Forum, and much more. At a local level, ASHI offers the largest network of Chapters with continuing education, learning and networking with successful home inspectors. For new inspectors is a “Parallel Home Inspection” program. There is also a pre-verification program to receive early constructive comments on three of your early inspections to determine if you are writing your reports in substantial compliance to the ASHI Standards of Practice.
