    Updated January 30, 2020

     

    InterNACHI® Training Partners 

    InterNACHI School utilizes several InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspectors (CPI®) who agree to volunteer their time and talent to provide informal tutoring and advice to InterNACHI members, and to act as inspector support resources for the InterNACHI School and its students. 
     
    InterNACHI refers to these individuals as InterNACHI Training Partner Schools or Instructors, because they are not part of InterNACHI School. They are not faculty or instructors of InterNACHI School. 
     
    InterNACHI Training Partners agree to assist InterNACHI staff when needed or tasked by InterNACHI School staff, particularly when a student has asked staff technical question related to a home inspection topic.

    The previous list of InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspectors (CPI®) agree to: 
    • volunteer their time and talent to provide informal tutoring and advice to InterNACHI members; and 
    • act as a resource, such as an subject matter expert, only in that they agree to assist InterNACHI staff when needed, particularly when a student has a technical question related to a home inspection topic.  
    InterNACHI Training Partners do not actually provide individualized instruction as part of InterNACHI School's curriculum. These members of InterNACHI provide advice and tutoring to other InterNACHI members. These members are not employed or contracted by InterNACHI or InterNACHI School to act as faculty. 
     
    InterNACHI Training Partners can interact with other members and students through email and messaging regardless of geographic location.  By using electronic communications, online tutoring can help to develop and grow the knowledge, skills, abilities, confidence, and understanding of an individual.  Faculty agree to respond to students within 24-72 hours.  If additional time is needed to respond to a request, students are notified that the request was received and provide a timeframe for expected resolution.
     

    Minimum Qualifications for Inspector Support Resource Members

    The minimum qualifications for being an InterNACHI Training Partner are that the individual must:

    • be a current member of InterNACHI;
