CHANGE IN DATE

To be Held at:
Puritan Conference Room
245 Hooksett RD
8:30 am Registration and Early Morning Refreshments
9 am to 4 pm - SPRING Educational Seminar and Lunch
NNEC Members - FREE
Non-Members - $150
Educational Credits: MA-6, NH-6 and ASHI-7
MA & NH Standards of Practice (SOP) 4 hours and 1 hour of Ethics
The presentation will review the SOP, a core requirement for license renewal and at the same time will share his years of experience by reviewing the numerous "repetitive type problems" that home inspectors encounter daily. The standards list each system to be observed, identified and reported on but not the knowledge behind them. Such problems are learned through continuing education, training, experience and discussion with fellow inspectors.
Ethics is also a core requirement for license renewal. A code of ethics is perceived by professional organizations, government authorities and the public as an expectation on honesty, objectivity, integrity
and the performance of duty without the conflict of interest. We will provide the required annual review needed for professional competence and training.
