Know The Addition - MA Home Inspector Training

Education & Training with Centsable Inspection

When inspecting a home in Massachusetts it is important to know the addition to the base code listed in the MA Amendments when informing a Client about the condition of the home.

Bathroom lighting and GFCI protection is a common place for personal injury.  If you only rely upon the Base Code (2014 NEC) you may be misinforming your client on the condition of the lighting and GFCI protection. 

2014 NEC 210.70 Lighting Outlets Required. (A) Dwelling Units, (B) Guest Rooms or Guest Suites, (C) All Occupancies

527 CMR 12 -- 210.70(D). Insert an additional lettered subsection (D) to 210.70 as follows: (D) GFCI Protection of Lighting Outlets in All Occupancies. The operation of a single GFCI device shall not deenergize all lighting outlets in a given area.

Know the addition to MA Home Inspector Training before you sign-up for a National Home Inspector training course.

Remember MA Home Inspector Regulations do not include a definition for "Major Defect" yet the regulation includes a definition for "Safety Hazard".
