Many have expressed the need for quality programs, so we have provided opportunities for our classes to be presented at numerous locations across the state.

Home Inspector Continuing Education Requirements
As required in statute, home inspectors will need to complete continuing education within their two-year license period prior to the expiration date in order to renew their license. In order to fairly implement this requirement, the Home Inspector Advisory Board in conjunction with the Department of State has determined that the amount of hours of continuing education to be completed is dependent upon the renewal date of the license. The required continuing education hours are as follows:

All licensed home inspectors will need to complete twenty four (24) hours of approved continuing education prior to renewal.
