Approval Responsibility: ASHI Education Committee with support provided by ASHI International Headquarters Staff. (ASHI staff administers this program; special questions are referred to the Education Committee.)
Instructions: This procedure and form permits individuals or organizations offering professional inspection education activities to obtain ASHI approval for CEs and to advertise that approval. Completion of ASHI approved programs permits attendees to claim CEs required for ASHI membership renewal.
BEFORE THE ACTIVITY: Organizations planning to offer an educational seminar or other professional education activity should complete the attached activity Information Form 30 days prior to the planned activity. Also provide a copy of the promotional flyer for this activity, or if not prepared when CE request is made, provide the draft of it. While we will accept late and last minute notice when given short notice, we may not be able to respond with approval in time for your scheduled advertising. It is the responsibility of the sponsoring organization to submit the material in adequate time for processing, which is usually fifteen days. It is the responsibility of the activity organizer to assure that material presented does not violate the ASHI Standards of Practice, Code of Ethics, or good safety practices. ASHI will review course material, speaker qualifications, class length, etc. for content, quality, and pertinence to home inspection professionals. ASHI will respond to requests for CE approval within 15 business days of receiving the required materials. After ASHI’s approval, sponsors of an activity are permitted and encouraged to publicize ASHI’s approval for the specific number of CEs.
AFTER THE ACTIVITY: A list of attendees completing the activity should be sent to ASHI within 30 days of completion of the activity. This list will be used by ASHI in spot-checking CEs claimed on Membership Renewals. The sponsor is required to provide a certificate of completion to all attendees stating the date, student’s name, course date, number of earned CEs and must be signed by the issuing agency.
