In North Carolina, the home inspector licensure board requires that all home inspectors complete continuing education each year to ensure inspectors are kept up to date on important topics in our state.
Our industry is very vibrant and there are many organizations inspectors can associate with in order to obtain continuing education credits. This past week, we attended the North Carolina Licensed Home Inspector Associations conference held at the Great Wolf Lodge in Concord. We believe in NCLHIA’s vision and standards for North Carolina home inspectors. The conference was held from Wednesday through Saturday. We received valuable training in HVAC systems, adhered masonry and stucco, and an update on NC requirements for energy loss from homes. We were able to learn from several speakers in addition to the required education component and network with vendors who offer services that can help our clients. NCLHIA is a large organization, so we were also able to meet with other inspectors from across the state and discuss what common themes inspectors are seeing out in the field. When several inspectors are talking about the same issues popping up, awareness of these problems helps us all become better inspectors.
Home Inspection is an ever-changing profession, and there is always more to learn. This was a very valuable trip and are excited to implement what we learned so that we can better serve you, our clients.
