The American Institute of Inspectors

The American Institute of Inspectors (AII) is a national non-profit trade association.  AII is the only home inspection organization which requires every member to undergo a comprehensive training program before being tested and earning certification as a Certified Home Inspector.  Completion of semi-annual Continuing Education Classes are required as well.  As members, we are part of an important association that strives to improve overall standards and education for the professional Home Inspectors industry.

Doug is an active Master-Certified Member and past Standing Committee Member of AII, serving on the Ethics Standing Committee for 2002-2005.  The "Master-Certified" designation comes after reaching extensive levels of experience and continuing education, from levels of "Associate", then "Certified", then "Senior", and finally "Master".  A minimum of 36 credit hours per year of continuing education has to be completed, along with a minimum of four years experience.  Doug has actually completed over 75 credit hours per year average for the past few years, staying abreast of the latest changes in the inspection and construction industries.
