Home Inspector Trainee

When to Apply

Before applying as for Delaware licensure as a Home Inspector by examination, you must register as a Home Inspector Trainee and complete the required home inspections. Apply for registration as a Home Inspector Trainee if you do not hold a current license as a Home Inspector in another jurisdiction (state, U.S. territory or District of Columbia). If you hold a current Home Inspector license in another jurisdiction, apply by endorsement.

Completing Required Inspections

At least 75 supervised home inspections are required for Delaware Home Inspector licensure. You may only start accumulating the required inspections after your trainee registration is issued. You and your supervising Home Inspector(s) must maintain records of your home inspections on the Experience Log. The Log will be required when you apply for Home Inspector licensure by examination.
