    Some features which make InterNACHI's courses superior to existing continuing education options:
      1. Not only is each question weighted with regard to score, but each answer is weighted, as well as the correctness of each answer being weighted.
        1. Answers to easy questions are weighted such that the student is penalized, in terms of score, for answering incorrectly, but rewarded modestly for answering correctly.
        2. Answers to difficult questions are weighted such that the student is rewarded, in terms of score, for answering correctly, but not penalized for answering incorrectly.
        3. Answers to questions regarding basic safety, or questions every inspector should know the answer to, are weighted such that the student is severely penalized, in terms of score, for answering incorrectly.
    • Upon passing the final exam, the student can print out a Certificate of Completion which is auto-generated in their own name.
