The home inspection profession is regulated in Florida. Follow the steps below to become a licensed home inspector in Florida.
The law requires Florida home inspectors to:
- Pass 120 hours of approved course instruction;
- Pass the Florida Home Inspection Exam (FHIE) or another approved exam
- Obtain $300,000 commercial general liability insurance.
Florida home inspector licensing is regulated under Florida Statutes Chapter 468, Part XV. PHII's online 120-hour
home inspection training pre-license course has been approved by the Florida Department of Business and Professional
Regulation (DBPR) to satisfy the state's pre-license education requirement.
Note: PHII students pay just $100 rather than $200 to sit for the FHIE exam due to our affliation with the
Florida Association of Building Inspectors (FABI). PHII students also get the first year's association dues waived
if they choose to become a FABI member. Learn about scheduling and studying for the Florida Home Inspector Exam.
Our students have had great success passing state and national exams, and you also receive FREE continuing education
credits with your enrollment! Please check the website periodically for updates about current licensing laws or
