I’m sound boarding here so any suggestions would be helpful.
I’ve just completed a 3 day training course termite diagnostic(er) for Estate Agents which cost a lot of money. I have the competence to diagnose and diploma to treat. The Exams and certification costs a further 750€ (very confident of passing). When diplomed I will be able to offer legal diagnosis of termites, valid for 6 months for Actes de vente. However If I officially diagnose with positive results, according to French law - conflict of interest, it would be illegal for me to treat the termites.
If I do not take the diploma, I can diagnose and treat termites but not using official AFNOR legal Stationary or offer diagnosis for Immobiliers.
So, is there a demand for a diagnostiqueur termites or shall I remain undiplomed but able to treat?
Depending on the départment, diagnosis of lead, electricity, gas, asbestos energy and termites are required. I will be specialising exclusively on diagnosing termites and not the rest.
It’s a toughy, so any thoughts would be appreciated!
