ASHI Membership

ASHI® Membership Categories and Requirements

Members of ASHI® are required to abide by the Society's Code of Ethics, which specifically forbids home inspectors from active brokerage or sale of real estate, or performing repairs on homes, which they inspect. ASHI Inspectors also agree to perform and report inspections in accordance with the ASHI Standards of Practice. Besides the ASHI logo is widely regarded as the mark of a professional home inspector, its use by the ASHI membership is also carefully controlled.

There are three designations of membership in ASHI®:

ASHI Certified Inspectors have met the following requirements:

  • Passed the National Home Inspector Examination 
  • Passed the ASHI's Standards and Ethics Examination.
  • Had inspection reports successfully verified for compliance with ASHI's Standards of Practice.
  • Submitted valid proof of performance of at least 250 fee-paid home inspections that meet or exceed the ASHI Standards of Practice.

Associates w/ Logo Privilege have met most of the requirements for Certified Inspector status:

Current requirements are:

  • Passed the National Home Inspector Examination
  • Passed the ASHI's Standards and Ethics Examination.
  • ASHI has verified performance of 50 fee-paid inspections in substantial compliance with the Standards of Practice.

Associates have not yet met the ASHI Certified Inspector requirements, however:

  • Candidates may be highly experienced inspectors who have just joined ASHI, or they may be novice inspectors who have completed training or otherwise entered the profession.

ASHI Members must also attend a minimum of 20 hours of continuing education annually to maintain membership.

Whether selling or buying you need the peace of mind that a ASHI Certified Inspector can provide.
