Will online test scores be made public?
This goes back to CMI (I'm trying to not turn this into a CMI thread). When a member of the public needs a home inspector, they only spend 5 seconds researching. That's it. I've been at this for 23 years and I handle all the incoming consumer emails. Not once in those 23 years did a consumer ask about exam scores. Not once. Again, you have 5 seconds to convince a consumer who is holding your brochure or has landed on your website that they have found the right inspector. 5....4....3....2....1. That's it. Certified Master Inspector does the job for you with 2 seconds to spare. I suspect our college degree in home inspections will be similarly efficient and causing consumers to choose you.

They might have not known they exist in the first place.

Your point is well taken of what really matters. I guess it is similar to the prestige of the university, not necessarily their grades, that is important.

I wish every consumer did 5 hours of research before they chose an inspector. They don't. They do 5 seconds.

It's like a boxing match that is scheduled to go one 5-second round. When that bell rings, you'd better throw your very best punches.

I got an email from a member asking me.....Since I did the advanced electrical training video instructor and co-wrote the NACHI basic electrical online exam....lol.....am I now Professor Abernathy when your University begins....lol.....

I thought you would find that interesting.....so I just had to come visit.

Ironically....the question did come to mind...since the CMI's demonstrate years of experience, affidavit submitted statements on hours of education and in the field training....is your new university going to offer any transfer credit of those accomplishments towards the new "future" degree.

Considering the "BAR" for that designation is set high you would think it would transfer something in an evaluation process?

Anyway...Congrats and as always Wishing NACHI and the Members superior success...I NACHI Blood runs deep.......!

The InterNACHI courses you've already taken will count as they are part of the curriculum. As we get all the InterNACHI members their degrees, we'll go back across North America and lobby to get members with the degree exempted from licensing, much like engineers are exempt.

Great job Nick. I just joined your other association as well. I love all you do for us. I would like to know when the degree is available. I already have 317 credit hours with the courses you have offered us. I will be taking the other courses as soon as I have a free moment. I will be proud to have that associates degree on my homepage and my wall. Please let us know as soon as it is available.

If this is an actual degree, what are you doing for core and general education classes?

Already developed. All the courses are done. It's the University accreditation that we're going through now.
