How to Become a Certified Home Inspector in Massachusetts



Home Inspector Licensing

InterNACHI has been approved by the Massachusetts Division of Professional Licensure as a provider for Licensure Training for home inspectors. For more information, visit the Massachusetts website. Unfortunately, the state does not recognize online licensing courses. We do not have any live classes for licensing scheduled. 
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.
