The National Association of Home Inspectors, Inc. is one of the nation’s leading providers of high stakes examination for home inspection professionals. The NAHI State Real Estate Inspector Examination was designed, created, and validated by psychometricians using psychometric standards and principles (AERA, APA, NCME Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing) to assist state regulatory agencies in accurately and efficiently measuring the competence of home inspectors.
The State Real Estate Inspector Examination does not test standards of practice or codes of ethics, but rather tests the technical competency of home inspection professionals. This provides valuable flexibility and protects against association-based bias in examination by accommodating each state and their desire to create their own specific standards of practice and code of ethics.
The State Real Estate Inspector Examination is currently recognized for licensing in Kansas, Kentucky and West Virginia.
The State Real Estate Inspector Examination is also administered exclusively by PSI. With over 1,000 computer-based testing centers across the United States and Canada, plus 30 international sites, PSI is the largest United States owned and operated network in North America. Please note that PSI does not handle our exam registration – You must register with NAHI via fax or mail. In addition to the registration form below, you must submit a copy of your training school certificate of completion.
