(International Association of Certified Home Inspectors)
Other home inspection associations have no entrance requirements and worse, encourage their candidates to go out and perform actual inspections for poor, unsuspecting consumers as the only way to achieve full membership. NACHI finds this practice unconscionable. That is why NACHI front-ends its membership requirements. NACHI turns down more than 1/2 the inspectors who want to join because they can't pass the exam or fulfill the membership requirements.
