Some owners have begun to require an individually certified coating inspector for projects, rather than a certified firm. Is this necessary?


Answers Votes
Yes, inspectors should be individually certified. 90%
As long as the firm is certified, the individual will be qualified enough. 6%
No certification is needed, as long as the inspector is experienced. 3%

Yes it is necessary.Just because a firm is Certified does not mean that the persons doing the work actually know what they are doing.Furthermore, I have met Persons that have been busy as a Painter or blaster for some 30 years,or doing inspection work learned on the job, and had no idea how to fill out a Survey report,make proper measurements or other tasks requierd from Certified Inspectors. In the end they costed thier companies more money than they earned.

I'm a bit puzzled by this - AFAIK, paint inspector certification was established practice long before firm certification came on the scene.

Does it make a difference? You can get an inspector with or without certification or a firm and still get a bad inspector. What needs to happen is the implementation of a system that monitors inspectors and has the ability to weed out the incompetent ones. The other requirement should be on the owner to specify training and experience levels of inspectors.
