I recommend the following Manual to prepare for the New York State NHIE Exam, as follows:
NATIONAL HOME INSPECTION EXAMINATION- Offered Nationally for NYS Students who graduate our school
New York State Canceled their Home Inspection State Exam and replaced it with the National Home Inspection Exam, known as the NHIE Exam.
The Test in NYS only began 1-15-2020
The NHIE Exam is a tough test to pass. Most seasoned Home Inspectors are cautioned about signing up for the NHIE Exam unless they have taken at the very least 1 month of studying for this
newly mandated and more difficult exam. Modules 1, 2, 3, and 4 are NYS Mandated. We, as a school are required to teach to the NYS Code of Ethics and the NYS Standard of Practice. The
NHIE exam goes further than just what you are taught in class, because there are no two houses which are identical. The NHIE Exam tests you to make sure you understand each and
every component of the requirements of the Final and tests you to make sure you have mastered the materials in NYS. Passing each Module with a 70% or greater may get you to receive your
Module Certificates, but it will not be enough to pass the NHIE Exam. Yes, you are a Generalist and we only are in class for 100 hours. The NHIE Exam recommends you study for 30 to 50 hours prior
to signing up for the NHIE Exam in New York State.
As you can see, you are to make an appointment with PSI Testing Center at 800-733-9267 https://www.dos.ny.gov/licensing/homeinspect/hinspectnatrecschools.html
Recent legislative changes require Home Inspector applicants to pass the National Home Inspector Examination.

Before you take the PSI Administered NHIE Exam, you MUST STUDY diligently for the National Board Exam.
Do Not Expect To Pass Just Because You Simply Passed Modules 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. The NHIE Expects you to have mastered
the materials and as such you must study detailed information, just like a Real Estate Broker Exam, A CPA Exam, A Paralegal National Exam,
A PE Engineers Exam, etc. You may be a Generalist, but that does not exempt you from mastering the materials in order to pass the State
Our School recommends the following:
BUY A NHIE STUDY BOOK OR PAY FOR AN ON LINE STUDY PROGRAM. The cost varies between $ 35.00 per month for on-line study materials to several hundred dollars for
the National NHIE Study Manual. Only you can study and put the effort in the take the NHIE Exam and pass it. Do not simply wing it to see how easy it is, for if you do, you will
not pass. If you need tutoring to help you pass the NHIE Exam, contact the school and make sure you have mastered all the materials in Modules 1, 2, 3 and 4 before you come to a tutoring
session. You should not spend your tutoring time re-studying the materials covered on the course outline, as past of Modules 1, 2, 3 and 4.
