With the acceptance of the above documents, a Program Participation Agreement shall be mailed for execution. Program binder, online access to the Inspector Certification Program Manual, and first Candidate’s course materials will ship following the return of completed Program Participation Agreements.
The Certification Program has been developed as a self-study program, although inspectors can choose to attend training classes offered by some of ALI’s Member Companies.  Attendance at one of these ALI Member Company-sponsored training classes is not a requirement of the Certification Program.
There are two exams that each inspector must pass.  There are additional fees for both exams. To locate a testing facility near you, click here.
Note: a representative from the registered company must attend one of the Orientation Meetings in order for the candidate to be eligible for the first exam.
Certification is granted after successfully passing both exams, completion of required Practical Experience Inspections, and approval of all documentation by the Program Administrator.
