Did you know there are still a few idiotic home inspectors out there who haven't joined InterNACHI yet? I know, it sounds unbelievable.

Ben,

I am licensed in Ohio as a radon tester, I have to undertake 16 hours of CE every 2 years to keep my license which expires next spring. My question is, since this will be my first renewal, do I just take the InterNACHI course and exam again (I already passed this exam) to satisfy The ODH renewal requirements?
Thanks
Derek

Derek,
Call Chuck to verify. I'd do it but I just sat through the class a few months back and am good to go for the next couple of years, but would much rather do this way than sitting through another MURC class.

Keep us informed.
