File the Application for Licensed Home Inspector by Endorsement application when you hold a current license as a Home Inspector in any jurisdiction (state, U.S. territory or District of Columbia) that has a licensing board for Home Inspectors.
If you do not hold a current license in any jurisdiction, you may qualify based on your experience. See Home Inspector by Experience. However, if you do not qualify based on experience either, you must register as a Home Inspector Trainee.
The State of Pennsylvania does not have a licensing board for Home Inspectors and does not issue Home Inspector licenses. Membership in a non-profit home inspection society or in the Pennsylvania Home Inspectors Coalition (PHIC) is not considered licensure for purposes of obtaining a Delaware license by endorsement. If you do not qualify based on experience, you must register as a Home Inspector Trainee.
|IF you…||AND IF you are licensed…||THEN…|
|hold one of these memberships:
Note: ASHI or NAHI associate memberships do not qualify. See below.
|anywhere other than New Jersey||submit proof of your ASHI or NAHI membership.
Reason: NAHI or ASHI membership at this level establishes that you have the required experience of practicing at least one year and completing at least 75 inspections.
||only in Maryland||
STOP. You must register as a Home Inspector Trainee.
Reason: You do not qualify based on endorsement because Maryland’s license requirements are not substantially similar to Delaware’s. You also do not qualify based on Home Inspector by Experience.
|anywhere other than Maryland and New Jersey||submit copies of the other jurisdictions’ licensing law and rules and regulations for the Board to review.
Reason: The Board will determine if any of the license requirements are substantially similar to Delaware’s. If none are, you must register as a Home Inspector Trainee.
