Free Illinois Continuing Education Courses for Home Inspectors: Step-by-Step Procedure

Follow the following step-by-step procedure to attain Continuing Education credits for your home inspector license in Illinois. For additional information about Illinois, visit https://www.nachi.org/illinois.

 

Step #1: Choose an online course (online & free for members).

Choose any IDFPR-approved course from the list below.
Log in, take a course and pass its final exam. All of InterNACHI's online courses and exams are free to members. (Don't forget to enter your state license number at nachi.org/state-licenses.)

Step #2: Choose a local proctor, and take the course exam (the same exam).

Illinois requires that you pass the course exam in front of a proctor. Choose your proctor from InterNACHI's List of Illinois Proctors. It's your choice. The proctoring service may be free, or there may be a small fee.
In front of your proctor, log into the online course and take its final exam. You have to pass the online exam with 80% or better. Because it's online, grading is instant. You are permitted to immediately retake the exam, if needed. You would need the services of a proctor again. 

Step #3: Email the exam result.

Your proctor must email the InterNACHI Proctored Exam Form (PDF download) to Moranda at moranda@internachi.org. This is the critical step. We'll submit your course information to the state upon receiving the form. No form, no credit.
