Requirements to be an InterNACHI Certified Moisture Intrusion Inspector

Certified Moisture Intrusion Inspector Certificate.

The goal of this course is to teach the student how to identify and report on moisture intrusion in homes and commercial buildings.

  ⦿   identify and describe specific details of building that may cause moisture-related problems;
  ⦿   describe the design, construction, and maintenance of houses and buildings that manage moisture effectively;
  ⦿   inspect for indications of moisture intrusion;
  ⦿   communicate how to prevent moisture intrusion by proper installation of systems and components;
  ⦿   understand how energy, moisture, water, and vapor moves through a building;
  ⦿   recognize evidence of structural damage and previous repair; and
  ⦿   communicate to clients indications of moisture intrusion.

This course also teaches the best building practices and standards that make a home moisture-resistant. Building practices and construction techniques are essential for an inspector to understand. Building components that are defective, incorrectly installed, or simply missing can produce moisture-related problems. Moisture intrusion of a building can cause major structural damage and can threaten the safety of its occupants. Most E&O insurance claims in the inspection industry involve moisture intrusion. Once an inspector knows what properly installed building components looks like, then recognizing installation defects becomes easy. Education and training on the best and most recent building practices for controlling moisture are essential for every property inspector.
