Our Mission

By awarding the Continuing Education/experience-based Certified Master Inspector® professional designation, the Master Inspector Certification Board, Inc., supports the inspection industry’s advanced education providers and encourages experienced inspectors to maintain excellence throughout their careers.

Certified Master Inspector (CMI)® is both a U.S. and Canadian registered trademark of the Master Inspector Certification Board, Inc. CMI® is the inspection industry’s top professional designation and is awarded to qualifying inspectors who have demonstrated the highest level of competency.


Obtaining the CMI® designation automatically conveys to potential clients that you are a seasoned inspector who has over 1,000 hours of experience, abides by a code of ethics, and has passed a criminal background check. In addition, you have access to myriad benefits, including FREE marketing materials, FREE T-shirts, hats, and other promotional materials, FREE access to continuing education, and more.

The CMI® fee is one time only, and you can opt for the monthly payment plan.
CMI® is a huge marketing tool. Letting your clients know you are the best of the best. You’ve been in business for many years, you’ve completed the education, you’ve performed many inspections. You’re more than qualified and know what you’re doing vs. someone who’s just started their business.

CMI® gives the client and real estate agent peace of mind knowing that you’re more than qualified to perform the inspection. The client doesn’t spend much time reading into things when hiring an inspector. The words certified master inspector® set you above all other businesses. You need to market that as much as you can—logos for your website, business cards.

We have a plethora of marketing materials at your disposal once you become a CMI®. It pays for itself over the course of time with the new business it brings you. Of course, that relies on you putting in the initiative to market yourself as a CMI®.
