|A NSHI membership will help you promote your services and grow
as a professional in the home inspection industry. For a low annual membership fee of just $199 (only $149 for
renewals), NSHI is about one-third the cost of some other professional associations, while providing the member
services you need.
Find Inspector Referral Service
The home inspection business is driven by referrals, so NSHI offers a free Find Inspector service for members.
When a potential client requests an inspector for a certain location, NSHI matches the geographic location with
its member database, allowing the client to find a NSHI inspector in his or her area. A special page allows the
client to either email the NSHI inspector, call, or visit the inspector's website, depending on the member's contact
NSHI Member Website
NSHI members receive an easy-to-use website control
panel where members can create their free website hosted on NSHI's server. Quickly and easily list your business
online, highlighting your professional membership. Use your custom webpage to promote your business and serve as
a resource for existing customers. Other companies charge hundreds of dollars per year for similar services, but
NSHI members receive this service free of charge.
Continuing Education Hours
NSHI provides a free 6-hour continuing education
course each year for members. These online courses, developed by special arrangement with Professional Home Inspection
Institute (PHII), assist you with professional development, meet the NSHI membership requirements,
and add to your credentials. In some states, this continuing education course even meets the requirements to renew
your home inspection license.
The NSHI Spotlight! is a newsletter where members can submit news articles, personal
experiences, tips, and questions. One of the goals of the society is to promote high quality home inspection services
throughout the United States and Canada. The NSHI Spotlight! is a reliable source of information and a great platform for sharing
knowledge and information with other home inspectors.
IRC/UBC Code Quizzes
Code quizzes are included in the NSHI Spotlight!
newsletter and may also be accessed through the Members Only section of the NSHI website. Code quizzes are a valuable
study tool for inspectors who have not yet taken the National Home Inspector Examination. They are also a terrific
educational resource for inspectors interested in enhancing their code knowledge. Quizzes are archived along with
previous editions of the newsletter at the Members Only section of the NSHI website.
