A little information on Who Gerry Beaumont was and why we have this Award Tribute.
 
The InterNACHI Gerry Beaumont Education Award is given out annually to a deserving member who successfully completes 50 Continuing Education credit hours within one calendar year.
The award is named for Gerry Beaumont, Certified Master Inspector? and founding chairman and director of InterNACHI?s Education Committee, who passed away unexpectedly in May 2010.
He was instrumental in developing InterNACHI?s education curriculum and helped countless inspectors during his career, guiding them with his professionalism, humor and knowledge.
A native of Great Britain, Gerry owned a remodeling company and immigrated to the U.S. and settled in Massachusetts in 1995. He owned a property management company and also taught an eight-subject, 144-hour home inspection course at a local community college for four years. He eventually moved to Florida with his wife and two children, where he ran his own inspection firm, specializing in both residential and commercial property inspections, as well as educational and training services, in addition to business consulting.
Gerry?s involvement with InterNACHI began and ended with inspector education. With Founder Nick Gromicko?s support and IT Director Chris Morrell?s expertise, he helped design the proprietary online course and testing system for which InterNACHI is famous both within and beyond the inspection industry. He authored our first courses, including the Residential Standards of Practice, and the roof and electrical inspection courses.
Gerry?s dream and drive continue to live on in what make up the central core of InterNACHI: education, mentoring and fellowship. His enduring contribution is in evidence through InterNACHI?s dozens of inspection courses, which provide clear, accurate and useful training and education, and have earned more than 1,000 accreditations, and are taken by thousands of home inspectors worldwide every day.
