Experience matters. Over the years there have been a lot of inspectors who came from other fields outside of construction, ie. Pilots, Businessmen, etc. They thought it would be easy money. Unfortunately it is not. Crawling around in crawl spaces and hot attics is tough. Knowing what to look for is even tougher. If they do not have at least 10 years in the construction Field, you should probably keep looking. There are plenty in the inspection field who do have the experience you need.
