National Certification Program

Our primary mission - National Certification

The National Home Inspector Certification Council (NHICC) is a non-profit federal corporation controlled by a Board of Directors. The main function of the organization provides an applicants background review and assessment system that will independently certify home inspectors that meet the National Occupational Standard for Home & Property Inspectors in Canada. This national "program" is open to all home inspectors regardless of affiliation. The NHICC is completely independent providing the same value and rigor required for certification and accreditation as specified by the National Initiative, minus the association influence. The NHICC is not an association of members, but rather it is a true certification body with "registrants" that values independent third-party certification rigor and accountability to consumers.

National Occupational Standards

2014 National Standard for Home Inspectors

The most recent National Occupational Analysis was completed in 2014. It serves in identifying worker knowledge, skills and performance assessment. The NHICC thanks contributors for their feedback.
National Standards and Accreditation

The National Standards serves as a fundamental tool designed for the development of appropriate education and training curriculum. It is also formally recognized as a assessment performance standard.
Home inspection associations need to ask - have their "certified inspectors" really completed a true independent certification process?

"Third-party certification is a formal process for independently verifying that a product meets specific requirements or criteria."
"The term 'accreditation' in the education and training sector, is the process used to formally recognize quality training standards."
