What is an ASHI ACI Certified Inspector?
ASHI Certified Inspectors (ACI) have reached the highest level of ASHI Membership by
having accomplished all of the following:
- Passed the National Home Inspector Examination
- Completed the ASHI Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics Education Module
- Had Inspection Reports successfully verified for compliance with ASHI Standards
- Submitted valid proof of performance for at least 250 home inspections
ASHI Certified Inspectors are the only true 3rd party certified Inspectors in the industry
that are accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA)
They are allowed to use the Gold ACI Logo:
Why is peer review important?
Peer review means that other ASHI ACI inspectors look at some of our inspection reports
to make sure that our reports continue to meet ASHI standards. Peer review of inspectors
and their reports helps ensure a consistent and quality product.
Peer review is not required:
By home inspection training institutes that “certify” their graduates
To maintain the Wisconsin Home Inspector license
By insurance companies providing coverage to home inspectors
Professional Home Inspection Company voluntarily belongs to ASHI and
participates in the peer review process in an effort to continually improve our
service to our customers.
Why Should Home Inspectors be ASHI Certified Inspectors?
Certification helps home inspectors and consumers. ASHI Certified Inspectors set a higher
standard for professional home inspections. Consumers need home inspectors who have
taken the time and given the energy to improve themselves and their profession. Many
potential clients ask for ASHI Certified Inspectors. Achieving the ACI status is one way we
demonstrate our commitment to the profession.
Schools often offer “certification” through their training programs. ASHI is taking that one
step further. The ACI Program is designed to bring structure to the learning process and
identify training weaknesses through a comprehensive testing process. This program
tests lifelong home inspector/home inspection competencies and skills. ASHI does not
directly produce training materials for this program. They do however, give participants a
listing of study materials for review prior to taking the exam.
