A BPI certification was held from April 2010 through March 2013. The certification was required to perform energy audits for the Home Performance with Energy Star statewide program. This energy efficiency improvement program helped thousands of New Jersey residences afford energy efficiency upgrades.
I am a member the New Jersey Association of Licensed Professional Home Inspectors, Inc. (NJ-ALPHI). They are dedicated to promoting the professional practice of home inspection in New Jersey and providing an open forum for all involved in the home inspection profession. Their goal is to provide the New Jersey home inspector community with a united voice in New Jersey.
In addition to state requirements I am also a member of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, commonly refired to as NACHI. They have their own set of requirements and require constant continuing education to maintain certification. My NACHI ID# is NACHI08092306. You can visit them at: http://www.nachi.org/.
New Jersey state law also requires that you be certified as a Radon Measurement Technician if you provide radon testing services. The certification is regulated through the State Of New Jersey Department Of Environmental Protection. My certification number is MET12656. They can be contacted through their website: http://www.njradon.org/ or you can call them at 1-800-648-0394.
An important step in choosing a home inspector is to make sure that they have the certifications, licensing, and insurance that qualify them to work for you. Please feel free verify my credentials with the information below.
New Jersey state law requires that all home inspectors be licensed. The license is issued through the Home Inspection Advisory Committee which is a subcommittee of the State Board Of Professional Engineers And Land Surveyors which falls under the umbrella of the Division Of Consumer Affairs. You can verify my license (24GI00095600) by going to their website: https://newjersey.mylicense.com/verification/Search.aspx?facility=N Or, you can call them at 973-271-8090.
One of the requirements for a home inspectors license is proof to the Committee that you carry insurance. By verifying a home inspection license you also are verifying a valid insurance policy is in place.
