What a great and timely question! As of January 1, 2020, all Home Inspectors must be registered with the State of Montana and they must conform to industry standards. Previously, there were no requirements and anyone who believed they knew the scope of the job could label themselves “Home Inspector.” The new registration program protects consumers and the public by requiring minimum levels of insurance, by requiring a minimum standard of knowledge and continuing education and by providing information about those authorized to conduct home inspection. This list of registered inspectors can be found on the State Department of Labor and Industry website.
