  McKissock Launches Another Funny, Meme-Inspired Video Answering the Question: What
                              Does a Home Inspector Do?

Denver, CO, February 26, 2013 - What actually happens during a home inspection? It depends
who you ask. Home inspectors are called upon every day to look at properties, but what do their
moms, clients and the rest of the world think they do? “What is a Home Inspector?” is a funny
video that answers that question from a variety of perspectives.

People often have different ideas about how a home inspector’s job gets done. Whether helping
keep people safe from electrical fires, pointing out signs of water damage or confirming that a
certain home is a wise investment, this profession is full of hard-working professionals. This
entertaining, meme-inspired video takes a comedic look at what they do and don’t do!

McKissock, the creator of the video series, is a trusted resource for state-specific, state-approved,
engineering, land surveying and home inspection courses, regulation information and
compliance. This video is aimed at home inspection professionals who can laugh at the different
perceptions of their career; check it out at

“Home inspectors deserve a lot of respect for the hard work they do every day to help us stay
safe and warm. But they also deserve a good laugh,” says Annie Creek, Business Development
Manager for McKissock. “We love this series of videos because, no matter the career, we all have
inside jokes about what we do – and won’t ever do!”

In many states, home inspectors are required to hold a state license and keep up their continuing
education. Because rules and regulations vary across the country, it can be confusing to know
what the home inspector requirements are for license renewal, including how long it will take,
what forms are needed and the related fees. McKissock serves as a comprehensive resource about
continuing education requirements and more. For license- and education-related questions,
contact 1-800-328-2008.

For busy home inspectors who need a reminder for license renewal (because they are too busy
saving cats and babies or inspecting cellars as you will see in the video), McKissock offers a free
reminder service that will notify you when your license renewal date is approaching. Visit to sign up.

“Professionals have enough on their plate, so we provide reminders, coursework and compliance
information and serve as an ally,” adds Creek. “We have a deep understanding of the lives of
people who spend a lot of time in the field and don’t want to be concerned about license deadlines
and paperwork.”

McKissock has affiliations directly with many associations to better assist professionals in receiving
their continuing education credits. For those with a home inspector job, McKissock has met the
standards and requirements of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), the National
Association of Home Inspectors (NAHI) and the California Real Estate Inspection Association
