Inspector Educational Opportunities

Established in 1976, CREIA is a hands-on, member-run organization committed to promoting the real estate inspection industry, providing educational programming, and maintaining ethical standards which keep our members at the top of their field. You are invited to attend and participate in local chapter and statewide CREIA events, seminars and conferences. The listing below is a brief introduction to what is available to our members and candidates.

CREIA Chapters

CREIA chapters are located throughout the state. Most chapters hold monthly educational meetings and special event programs. Each CREIA member is assigned to a local chapter. All Certified CREIA Inspector (CCI) and Master CREIA Inspector (MCI) members, Candidates, Affiliates and prospective members/guests are invited to attend local meetings. Chapter meetings are an excellent way to meet and interact with peers, participate in educational programs, and market products and services to those in the inspection industry.

CREIA Technical Information Exchange

The CREIA Technical Information Exchange (T.I.E.) is one of the best membership benefits of the association. The latest information from the frontline, containing both inspection techniques and proper protocol, is available for all Inspector Members, Candidates and Affiliates.

The T.I.E. is great place to ask questions related to performing property inspections — whether entry- level “basic” or highly technical inquiries. Seasoned CREIA Inspectors are willing to share both their knowledge and real world experiences from the front line with both new and old members. With more than 25,000 postings (including many photos) on all topics related to the inspection professions, the T.I.E. is constantly monitored by the CREIA’s Online Activity Committee.

Any CREIA member is welcome to view the current and past postings.  If you wish to participate in viewing/researching/posting/answering questions, please follow the prompts to register for your TIE User ID and password.
