American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI)
ASHI is the most respected professional association for home inspectors in North America. Through ASHI's continued efforts, ASHI's Standards of Practice covering all of a home's major systems are now part of many pieces of state legislation and are recognized by consumers as the authoritative standard for professional home inspection.
ASHI membership is one of the most stringent in the industry. Full members must complete two written examinations, including the National Home Inspectors examination, and conduct a minimum of 250 fee-paid peer-reviewed inspections, which have been verified to meet the ASHI standards of practice. ASHI members are also required to complete 20 hours of continuing education per year to maintain membership in the association.

National Home Watch Association (NHWA)
In 2009, the idea for an organization to bring together this very disjointed group of businesses—businesses that are known by many other names—to set standards, best practices, procedures and ethics so those providing this service protected their clients while they were in their homes. Without these things, especially correct insurance and bonding, the homeowner is completely exposed to damage to their property, injuries to people on their property, and any lawsuits that arise from them. It took many years of hard work and diligence by our members and advisors, but today, the National Home Watch Association is the authority in the Home Watch profession.
