All home inspectors are required to complete 30 hours of continuing professional competency education per license renewal term. However, the requirement does not apply to the first renewal of a home inspector license.

Educational hours from a continuing professional competency course satisfy the requirement if the course is offered by the following providers: The American Society of Home Inspectors, The National Association of Home Inspectors, or any other provider approved by the Commission, and the Commission determines that the course increases the licensee’s knowledge of the provision of home inspection services.
