A Brief AII™ History

AIIHistoryThe American Institute of Inspectors® was formed in 1989 by five men who were searching for a uniform credentialing body with mandatory standards for home inspectors.  When it was discovered that none existed, AII™ was born.

The American Institute of Inspectors® is a non-profit corporation established as a national inspection trade association.  The purpose of the association is to promote a high level of professionalism in the inspection industry by certifying qualified individuals as inspectors.  This is accomplished through approved training and examination of those who apply for certification.
