(ORCIA) OK Residential/Commercial Insp Assoc

ORCIA was formed in 1993 as the only not for profit state wide Oklahoma association dedicated to the improvement of the residential and commercial inspection trade. A group of home inspectors gathered together to develop a much needed inspection standard, conduct training to improve individual skills and to establish a collective voice to the public. Association by-laws were written and adopted (including minimum inspection standards). Membership criteria for ORCIA was established with chapters in Tulsa and OKC.

When the State of Oklahoma decided to establish regulatory standards for the home inspection industry, ORCIA was called upon to assist in the writing of the final state adopted language that became law.  ORCIA strives to seek out ways and methods to improve the education of it's members conducting semi-annual training conferences providing up to date information on inspection techniques, technical knowledge and skills necessary to manage one's business.
