How to Become a Licensed Home Inspector in the State of Florida

The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation is the entity that licenses home inspectors in the State of Florida.

To become licensed, you must complete an approved 120-hour pre-licensing course and pass an approved exam (among other requirements).

Several FABI Affiliates offer a State Approved 120-hour Pre-Licensing Course for Home Inspectors.

Your attendance at one of these courses earns you a discounted fee for the Florida Home Inspection Exam (a State Approved Licensing Exam), as well as one free year of FABI membership, once you attend a FABI conference.
