The Arizona State Board of Technical Registration (BTR) certifies and regulates home inspectors in the state. Arizona law requires completion of 80 hours of classroom training, passing the National Home Inspector Examination, and completion of 100 home inspections or 30 parallel inspections. Certified home inspectors in Arizona also must show financial responsibility. Failure to obtain financial assurance is grounds for revocation of the certification. Financial responsibility may be shown by posting a $25,000 surety bond, Errors and Omissions Insurance of $200,000 in the aggregate and $100,000 per occurrence, proof of assets as required, or an alternative method approved by the Arizona State Board of Technical Registration (BTR).
