Inspectors Newsletter - August 2016

We made a boo-boo!

Over the last year we have been tidying up our subscriber list to ensure only those inspectors that have valid email addresses are on the subscription list for the newsletter.   The final part of the clean-up identified in our eagerness to comply with the Canadian Anti-spam legislation, we removed the link to the subscription from new registrants.

If you have missed any of this years newsletters you can see them in the newsletter archive here.

If you have already qualified remember it is up to you to add relevant CEU/CPD units Police Background Checks and E&O Insurance Certificates into your profile to maintain your designation  Have you uploaded your.

If you haven't now might be a good time to send in your application form.  If you are already a Registered Home Inspector or National Home Inspector your path to the CCHI is a little more straightforward than if you are starting from scratch.

If you are a Certified Master Inspector, following the recent public sell-off on the InterNACHI website,  you may be required to provide more proof of past skills and operation but again your path to the CCHI is again straightforward.
