A Brief History of the American Institute of Inspectors
The American Institute of Inspectors® was formed in 1989 by five men. These men had searched for a uniform credentialing body with mandatory standards for home inspectors. When they discovered none existed, A.I.I.™ was born.
The American institute of Inspectors® is a non-profit corporation established as an inspection trade association. The purpose of the association is to promote a high level of professionalism in the inspection industry by certifying qualified individuals as inspectors. This is accomplished through approved training and examination of those who apply for certification.
The A.I.I.™ Board of Directors is composed of Inspection and Construction Educators, Insurance Professionals, Attorneys, as well as Active and Retired Inspectors. All have high regard for professionalism in the Inspection Industry. This Board donates their time and effort for the benefit of the association members.
Members who become certified operate under the Standards of Practice and Code Of Ethics of the American Institute of Inspectors®. Members remain Certified by meeting annual continuing education requirements. We are truly proud of the high level of professionalism we maintain throughout our inspection association.
