ATTENTION INSPECTORS - August 15th, 2017 is the re-certification deadline for those certified in 2014.  Be sure you have enough CEU's as there are NO RETEST opportunities for Inspectors......Also check out the new Re-certification criteria for Inspectors by clicking on this  new form.  Inspectors will be required to produce one completed report for:

1) Working system 

2) Non-working system. 

Without these reports, IOWPA will not approve your Inspector Re-certification.

ATTENTION HOMEOWNERS...if your IOWPA Certified Inspector is NOT using the IOWPA Inspector Report and Inspector Summary...the inspection is not recognized by IOWPA and MAY not be recognized by your county health department.
