About CIA

The Commercial Inspectors of America (CIA) was established as an association to promote and develop certified and licensed commercial inspectors in the professional commercial building inspection industry.

Members will be certified in the inspection disciplines of:
  • Property Condition Assessments
  • Environmental Phase I and Phase II assessments
  • Radon
  • Septic and Well
  • Energy efficiency
  • Carbon Foot-printing
Our organization designs policies, procedures, and standards that promote accurate reporting for strategic decision making.

Member's Recognition
Each member will receive a certification and a belt in the discipline that they are trained for. Members can apply for four levels of belts (or any combination of belts):
  • Brown Belt - At this level, a member is certified in Property Condition Assessments.
  • Green Belt - At this level, a member is certified in Environmental Assessments, (Phase I & II, Radon, Septic and Well).
  • Yellow Belt - At this level, a member is certified in Energy Assessments, (Energy Efficiency, and Carbon Foot-print).
  • Black Belt - At this level, a member has achieved certification in all disciplines, (Brown Belt, Green Belt AND Yellow Belt).
Belts can be applied for as an individual or as a corporation.

The CIA logo will be awarded to each individual or corporation that passes testing in the color of the belt he/she has achieved. Certified individuals may use the CIA logo on brochures, business cards, and for other advertising purposes to display to clients their achievement of CIA certification.

Each year, the voting members will recognize an individual and a corporation for outstanding performance in each of the three disciplines, (PCA, Environmental, Energy), predicated on their previous year's accomplishments in their respective industries.
