About NSHI

The National Society of Home Inspectors, Inc. (NSHI) was established in 2003 to promote professionalism among the thousands of home inspectors who engage in the profession each year. NSHI incorporated in 2005, and has a growing membership throughout the United States and internationally.

NSHI was formed in response to the need for higher standards for new inspectors entering the profession. NSHI membership is for applicants with home inspection experience or accredited* home inspection training, who have met applicable state licensing requirements, and who have passed NSHI's national certification test or an equivalent exam. NSHI professional members are designated full members after performing or participating in at least 100 inspections.

NSHI is a non-profit membership organization that operates independently of home inspector training organizations and does not endorse any training program.

NSHI's mission is as follows:

1. To advocate high standards of practice.
2. To enforce a code of ethics that protects consumers.
3. To provide opportunities and education for members.
4. To provide professional development for members.
5. To provide the above services at a reasonable price.
