Are you ready to lay the foundation for your own home inspection business? We’ve created a comprehensive guide to help you cement your new career as a home inspector in North Dakota. Follow the steps below to learn more about home inspection courses (and why they’re necessary), taking the National Home Inspector Exam (NHIE), and where to go from here.
Complete Either the NHIE, ASHI, InterNACHI, EBPHI, or ICC Exam
After completing your home inspector education, the next step is to register for (and pass) the National Home Inspector Exam. The NHIE consists of 200 multiple choice questions (25 of which are not scored). Test takers are given 4 hours to complete the exam, and each attempt costs roughly $225 (depending on your location). This test is known to be difficult, and enrolling in Exam Prep is an excellent way to fully prepare for your exam.
Provide Proof of Errors and Omissions Insurance for at Least $100,000
As a licensed home inspector in North Dakota, you must obtain errors and omissions (E&O) insurance. E&O insurance helps cover claims of negligence, errors in your services, misrepresentation, inaccurate advice, omissions, and violations of good faith and fair dealing. You’re required to have a policy minimum of $100,000, and you must include a valid policy number and effective coverage dates.
Pay the $200 Application Fee and Apply to Be a Home Inspector
Once you’ve taken and passed the National Home Inspector Exam (or its equivalent), you can apply for your license. Please note that you’ll need to pay a $200 application fee.
