This classification is for all persons engaged in, or interested in engaging in, the profession of performing fee paid home and building inspections while going through the process of becoming a Registered Professional Inspector. Associate Inspectors have three years from the date of application in which to complete the membership requirements. After this time, they must reapply for membership.
This designation entitles the FABI Associate Inspector to attend all FABI events at the reduced member rate, and other benefits which may be added from time to time. The FABI Associate Inspector has no voting privileges; may not serve as an elected Officer or Director; and may not receive referrals from the FABI 800# information and referral line. The FABI Associate Inspector may, however, use the standard FABI logo and serve on Committees. All FABI Associate Inspectors are encouraged to attain the Registered Professional Inspector status by completing all requirements, in which case they will have all rights of the Registered Professional Inspector, upon approval by the Board of Directors.
