How to Become a Certified Home Inspector in California

home inspector state regulations PHII meets all California requirements for home inspectors including the California Trade practice act (Chapter 338) enacted in 1996 that establishes a required standard of care. There is not currently a home inspector state license required in California, therefore, after graduation from our course, you can start inspecting right away!

Many Realtors, Lenders, home buyers, and home owners want to make sure a home inspector has been properly trained and certified. PHII will give you a nationally recognized home inspector certification and the credentials you need to become a successful home inspector in California. Becoming certified now may also make you eligible to be "grandfathered in" when new licensing laws or stricter regulations take effect.

Mold Course Add-On
Home Inspectors normally disclaim mold conditions and do not inspect for mold, but inspectors should be aware that California recently passed SB655 Housing Standards: Mold, effective as of January 1, 2016. This new law makes California the first state to declare mold an enforceable substandard housing condition if there is:

“any visible or otherwise demonstrable mold growth, excluding the presence of mold that is caused by inappropriate housekeeping practices or improper use of natural or mechanical ventilation.”

In general terms, SB 655 requires landlords to provide housing that is free of mold unless the mold is due to the renter's lack of cleaning. Many experts feel SB655 will force home inspectors to reduce their liability by being trained in mold. PHII's exclusive 4-course mold training package which includes CRMI, CCMI, and CMR certifications, can be added-on to your home inspector training for just $299 which is a valuable investment for your home inspection business! The package includes:

  • MD201: Residential Mold Inspection Course
  • MD202: Mold Remediation Course
  • MD203: Commercial Mold Inspector Course
  • MD204: Mold Remediation Protocols
