CAHPI Announces NOS Revision Completion
CAHPI is pleased to announce the completion of the review and revision of the 2008 National Occupational Standard for Home and Property Inspectors. CAHPI recognizes and willingly accepts its leadership responsibilities to the home inspection industry as well as to its stakeholders. For many years now CAHPI has dedicated itself to writing Standards of Practice and Codes of Conduct for its members and standards and protocols for the industry.
The NOS review and revision process brought together a group of experienced, respected inspectors from all across Canada and was facilitated Mr. Jeff Griffiths of Griffiths Sheppard Consulting Group, Calgary Alberta. The NOS working group collaborated through CAHPI National’s SharePoint online portal to communicate remotely at a significant cost saving. The revised NOS is now in final draft and will be published this fall.
CAHPI, on behalf of its members and industry stakeholders, extends its gratitude to the NOS working group for committing to the revision of such an important document to our competency model. CAHPI 2013 NOS
