Arizona Home Inspector Training

Want to become a home inspector in Arizona?

Arizona certifies its home inspectors through the State Board of Technical Registration. The board requires at least 84 hours of education, passing the NHIE exam, and going on parallel inspections. The board does not approve training schools, but rather they stipulate that a school is approved if it has an accreditation. Our training program is offered through Texas State University-San Marcos which is an accreditated institution. Your completion document comes from Texas State University-San Marcos.

This $699, 120-hour training course includes the following:

  • The 12-Volume DVD set showing you close to 2000 scenes of actual defects from actual homes.
  • The 500-page manual with over 350 line diagrams includes hands-on testing procedures, marketing, etc.
  • The 2-DVD Virtual Inspection set.
  • A study guide for the NHIE test--the state test used by Arizona.
  • The 11-DVD "Live" Classroom on DVD set.
  • Complimentary membership in NAHI (National Association of Home Inspectors, established in 1987).
  • Evaluation of three practice home inspections.
  • As a Special Bonus, we include the Residential Inspection Forms on CD at no extra cost. Most companies charge $300 to $900 for inspection forms.

The Board also requires 30 parallel inspections. We have inspectors in Phoenix who can provide you with these parallel inspections. They charge about $75 per inspection. However, if you find your own licensed home inspector to conduct these parallel inspections with, you are free to use them as well.
