As of January 2010, there is no licensing of home inspectors. However, there is legislation that defines what a home inspection is and the qualifications needed by individuals to be considered a home inspector in PA. In summary, the law Act 114 of title 68 chapter1032 says:
a. An inspector must be a regular member in good standing in a non-profit home inspector association that has members in 10 states:
b. An inspector must maintain Errors and Omissions insurance with minimum coverage limits of 100,000/300,000:
c. New inspectors complete an accredited home inspector course and pass a home inspector exam of competency.
d. New inspectors must participate in 100 fee paid inspections with a regular inspector.
