In Massachusetts, you will need to obtain your home inspection license through the Board of Registration of Home Inspectors.

When you register for our training, you will immediately get access to our online training and receive physical books to help prepare you for your live class.

During the class, you will also perform five inspections in local homes that count toward your supervised inspection requirements. AHIT is the only training program in Massachusetts that offers this.
