Default InterNACHI Beneifts

When I explain the InterNACHI benefits to my Atlanta IR class the non-members
can hardly believe it. Some said it nothing like ASHI.

Keep up the good work Nick.

Thanks to many staffers and members. And that ain't all either. Many other benefits listed in www.InspectorMALL.com and others lost under 230,000 other pages here. Every now and then I find a gem that I forgot about. Many more coming.

I just did an interview with a national business journal editor who is writing an article on the world's best run trade associations, which I found funny considering the way my staff looks Bottom pic https://www.nachi.org/drainandduct2008.htm

Besides the benefits, there are many more reasons why iNACHI towers over that other association.

1) iNACHI has requirements that one must complete before applying for membership. A$HI does not. You can join A$HI by doing nothing more than sending them your hard earned money.

2) iNACHI doesn't encourage or require new members to go out and perform a certain number of unqualified fee-paid inspection for poor, unsuspecting consumers as the only way to achieve full membership. A$HI unconscionably does.

3) iNACHI doesn't permit newbies to perform their first inspections on actual consumers. Newbies who wish to apply to iNACHI must do 4 mock inspections. A$HI has no such requirement and their Candidates or Associates regularly perform their very first inspection for an actual fee-paying consumer. Not a good thing….

4) iNACHI recognizes that consumers are most harmed by inspectors who don't know how bad they are. That is why iNACHI make their online exam open and free to all... to alert these consumer killers that they should go back to school or not enter the profession. iNACHI’s free, online exam has alerted tens of thousands of incompetent wannabees each year, some of which have instead joined A$HI and went out on the street to harm existing inspectors and murder consumers.

5) iNACHI recognizes that newbies need a rigorous ramp-up system. iNACHI has it: www.nachi.org/rigorous2006.htm A$HI doesn't.

6) iNACHI recognizes that fees (for exams or education) are much like a tax in that they deter inspectors from taking it. That is why all of iNACHI’s education is affordable or free and much of it is online so that there are no time and transportation costs. This has resulted in iNACHI delivering more continuing education than all other groups and schools combined... and for pennies per hour. A$HI offers no or little free education.

7) This industry is changing all the time as are iNACHI’s courses and exams. Passing an exam once, (years ago) doesn't alert today's inspector to that which he needs to know. That is why iNACHI requires members to pass the entrance exam every year. A$HI has no annual exam.

iNACHI requires advanced courses as a condition of membership. A$HI does not.

9) iNACHI’s online courses contain quizzes that alert the quiz-taker when he has answered incorrectly and tells him/her which one's he/she missed. In other words, the quizzes are educational in and of themselves. It does an inspector no good to learn that he/she answered an x number of questions wrong without telling him/her which questions. A$HI keeps its members in the dark about their weaknesses, any one of which could be deadly to the consumer.

10) iNACHI believes that the industry should be full of successful full-time inspectors and that business success and marketing is the only way good inspectors can stay in business. That is why iNACHI has developed so many success tools www.nachi.org/success.htm. What good is it for a technically proficient inspector to go out of business? How does it help the consumer to have our industry flooded with unqualified newbies cutting their prices to get their inspections in and in some cases, waving their newly printed licenses that they got due to A$HI pushed legislation which essentially triples the number of newbies overnight. I don't blame A$HI, they are tied to the NHIE which only makes money if the state uses their minimum standard exam to flood our markets.

iNACHI is the best inspection association in the world. Thousands of websites, hundreds of millions of hits, a huge message board, chapters in 43 countries and 9 languages, free online education, a commercial SOP, free websites for members, free hosting, free online inspection agreements, a sister indoor air quality association, a sister online TV show, an automated phone notification system, books dedicated to promoting InterNACHI members, promotions in 50,000 retail outlets, booths at hundreds of shows, insurance discounts, software discounts, legal forms and help, tons of free stuff, a free report uploading system, moveincertified.com, a huge mall full of deals and free stuff for inspectors and marketing tools the likes of which have never been seen!
