Keynote Speech

Speaker: P. Nathan Thornberry
Topic:  The State of Home Inspection:  Ontario

Buyers are foregoing inspections all too often in populated areas of Ontario at near record numbers.  Join us at OntarioACHI to discover why it’s happening and what we can do as business owners to combat this trend…or if we should combat this trend at all.  
Nathan’s two hour presentation will include the Keynote as well as updates on trends in Home Inspection throughout Ontario and beyond, the latest in marketing strategies, and some key consumer data you should know as a home inspection business owner.

Canadian-Certified Home Inspector - CCHI

Full-Members with the required training, experience can apply for the CCHI designation.  All entrants to the program will need to sit examinations, and these vary depending upon your experience.

• New Inspectors with the required training and experience need to sit two exams, of 250 Questions.  2½ hours are allotted for each examination to be completed.

• Inspectors who have a recognised designation (e.g. CMI, NHI, RHI or CMHI) will need to sit a single exam of 200 questions with 2 hours allotted in order to comply with the education audit requirements of the CCHI program.

• Existing CCHI Inspectors are required to sit re-certification exams every 2 years  to maintain the CCHI.  The re-certification examination is 200 questions and the Inspector is allotted 2 hours to complete the examination.

The examinations are open-book, allowing Inspectors to use the same reference material that might be used in the field.  The exams still requires a strong knowledge of the fundamentals of Home Inspection and a background of performing inspections.

We are offering limited places at the conference for those who wish to sit their examinations to do so, but these places are extremely limited, and proctoring for these exams will be free to members on these days.  (Normal price is from $90 per seat)  First-come, first served.

To book your place for examination fill in the form here: Examination Registration

Remember,  you need to remain a member to be awarded, and maintain the CCHI!
