Continuing Education

Home Inspectors are obligated to complete 40 hours of continuing education (CE) credits to renew their license for the upcoming licensure period.  Administrative Order 2020-04 waived the requirement of in-person CE for compliance during the public health emergency with NJAC 13:40-15.14 so you are not currently required to complete the required courses in person. Of the required 40 units, three units must be on report writing, three units must be on ethics, and three units must be on the rules governing the practice of home inspection OR, beginning January 6, 2020, four units on report writing and four units on ethics and the rules governing the practice of home inspection in New Jersey. 

Any person receiving initial licensure as a home inspector in the second year of a biennial registration period shall complete a minimum of 20 continuing education credits before the end of the biennial registration period.

For the 2021-2023 renewal period only, a total of 40 credits can be obtained either virtually or in person with any variation of the required nine (9) credits or recently adopted mandatory eight (8) continuing education credits.
