Inspection Education & Training This is a forum for inspectors to discuss their educational experience, the InterNACHI School, and to ask questions of InterNACHI's Education Committee.
This forum is dedicated to the memory of InterNACHI member and educator Gerry Beaumont. Gerry was an avid proponent of education for inspectors and will be sorely missed.

Default Wind Mitigations and 4-Point

I am in Florida and just passed the proctored exam! Will my license let me do 4-points and wind mitigations or do I need to take the separate courses and get certified in each? I am hearing different things and the Florida website is not very clear.

You still need to apply for your license in Florida. Once you have that, you can do a 4pt. To do wind mits, you will need at least at least 3 hrs of wind mit training and take another test. I can tell you that you will need much more training than that to do either one of these inspections properly.

Agree. I would at least take all of the advanced courses in each of the 4 areas and study very closely on the electrical. Example, make sure you understand the different types of cloth covered wiring. There is much more to it than you think.
