Licensed in TN, Certified in TN & GA. What Exactly Does That Mean?

BHI serves Southeast Tennessee and North Georgia.

The State of Tennessee requires licensing of home inspectors. Ty Bramlett's Tennessee State License Number is # 2248. Being an InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector® is not a requirement, but is an additional form of educational training and certification that exceeds the requirements of the state. The certifications and Continuing Education required by InterNACHI serve as additional in-depth training for the certified inspector so that he can provide sufficient and accurate information regarding a home’s condition. In other words, the certification helps the inspector provide the customer with a better service. Ty Bramlett's InterNACHI CPI Number is NACHI20020418.


The State of Georgia does NOT require licensing of home inspectors; however, the certifications and Continuing Education required by InterNACHI are more than adequate training for the certified inspector so that he can provide sufficient and accurate information regarding a home’s condition. Unfortunately, in the state of Georgia there are home inspectors that are not licensed (since it is not required in GA) and not certified. This is a scary gray area where many people that are not qualified are being hired to inspect homes, so buyer beware of such inspectors!

Ty Bramlett, CPI, is a Certified Professional Inspector® trained by InterNACHI—the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (—which is the world's largest nonprofit association of residential and commercial property inspectors, and provides education, training, certification, benefits and support for its members. All InterNACHI-Certified Professional Inspectors® are required to pass an Inspector Exam, follow a comprehensive Standards of Practice, abide by a strict Code of Ethics, and take accredited Continuing Education courses each year in order to maintain their membership in good standing.

Ty has acquired extensive home inspector training through InterNACHI’s rigorous Continuing Education curriculum, which includes dozens of live classroom, online, and video training courses, written by experts in their field, which have received more than 1,400 accreditations by state and governmental agencies throughout North America.

In order to become certified, Ty was required to take inspection courses related to the interior and exterior of the home, including the common and major areas of concern for home buyers, such as the foundation, heating and cooling, roof, plumbing, and electrical systems.  

Here is the list of InterNACHI courses required for initial certification:
