Home Inspector Licensing

While InterNACHI has been approved by the Massachusetts Division of Professional Licensure as a provider for Licensure Training for home inspectors (view state approval), the state does not recognize online licensing courses. We also do not have any live classes for licensing scheduled. For more information, visit the Massachusetts website and the home inspector licensing page. 
There is reciprocity between Massachusetts, Washington, and Connecticut. That reciprocity form is on the MA state website. So, you may be interested in attaining a license in Connecticut by taking InterNACHI's Connecticut-approved pre-licensing course (free and online for members) and following the steps to obtain a license in Connecticut. 


Insurance for Inspectors

To be a licensed home inspector in Massachusetts, individuals must meet certain requirements for adequate insurance coverage. InterNACHI members are eligible for discounts and enhanced coverage. Visit for information on how to sign up.
