About the North American Association of Home Inspectors

About the North American Association of Home Inspectors NAAHI

Since 2003, the North American Association of Home Inspectors, Inc. (NAAHI) has been committed to achieving greater professionalism in the home inspection industry. NAAHI promotes high standards for those who engage in the home inspection profession each year and has a growing membership throughout the United States and Canada.

Formerly known as the National Society of Home Inspectors (NSHI) through 2018, NAAHI changed its name to better reflect its membership growth in both the United States and Canada. NAAHI has members in every U.S. state and Canadian province, along with members in several other countries.

NAAHI was formed in response to the need for higher standards for new home inspectors entering the profession, especially in areas where home inspections are not regulated by a state body. Membership is for applicants with home inspection experience or NAAHI-accredited* home inspection training, who have met applicable state licensing requirements, and who have passed NAAHI's national certification test or another state or national exam. NAAHI professional members are designated full members after performing or participating in at least 100 inspections.
NAAHI-Accredited Gold-Level Training Provider
As a non-profit membership organization, NAAHI operates independently of home inspector training schools and does not endorse any home inspection training program. NAAHI provides a rigorous accreditation process for training schools who desire to have their training programs count towards NAAHI entry requirements. NAAHI-accredited training providers who participate in NAAHI's Gold-Level program are eligible to provide free 1-year NAAHI memberships to their graduates.

NAAHI'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.


NAAHI-Accredited Training Provider* To become a NAAHI-accredited training provider, a home inspector training school must submit an application to NAAHI for approval. Applicants are required to have one visit to the training site; a review of the curriculum, enrollment and company structure, be authorized or licensed by its state post-secondary education governing body and not facing disciplinary action; be insured and bonded; have been in continuous operation for at least 10 years; be an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau with a satisfactory complaint history; and employ instructors who hold valid home inspector licenses in the state(s) where the training is conducted. Accreditation is renewed every 3 years. Note that the application processing fee, which includes travel expenses, background checks and administrative fees, is based upon the school's average annual enrollment and is not refundable.
