NORMI Approved for FL Home Inspector Board Training

Abita Springs, LA 05/16/11

Effective immediately, NORMI, the National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors, has been approved as a State Training Provider for the Florida DBPR (Department of Business and Professional Regulation) Home Inspectors Board. This will enable NORMI to begin offering building science, mold inspection and other types of courses specifically designed to help home inspectors be more effective in their analysis of building problems.

“This is a big day for NORMI,” said Executive Director Doug Hoffman, “because we have continued to grow our credibility every time a government board recognizes the value of what we do. There is no ‘national credibility board’ and so it is important for us when States like Florida approve our training and certification. It’s why we are able to then pass on our credibility to our members who need to set themselves apart from all the guys in the marketplace who are NOT certified, trained or licensed.”

The Florida Home Inspector Board was formed in July, 2010 to facilitate the licensing of Home Inspectors in the State of Florida. There are now specific requirements in place to assure that those who are representing themselves are “qualified” have, in fact, met insurance, training, experience and certification requirements. Though there was an effort to deregulate this industry, the legislation stands and Home Inspectors must now take continuing education credits every two years to keep their licensing current.
