NCH & Transfers

Since the NHICC Directors have been heavily involved in the development of the National Certification Program and also formerly with the administration of the (NCA) National Certification Authority we offer a Prior Learning Assessment review for current (NCH) National Certificate Holders & also for (RHI) Registered Home Inspectors and ASHI (ACI's) for equivalency.

The Prior Learning Assessment process provides an opportunity for those experienced and qualified practitioners to earn the NHI-certification designation. The NCH designation was previously conferred on qualified practitioners that met the certification requirements of the original National Certification Program administered by CAHPI.

National Admissions Board (NAB)

The NAB reviews and asseses all applications to best place an applicant into the applicable category level. The National Certification requirements are specified in the "Candidate Handbook". The NHICC certification process is assessed on a background review point based system where specific points are earned for specific education, experience, skills and tasks equated. The point system is outlined under our document "Certification - Review Points".

The NHICC National Certification Program is open to ALL home inspectors regardless of affiliation or lack thereof. In some cases completion of exams may be required to satisfy provincial regulations for licensing.
