Nationwide Inventory Professionals: Delaware Licensee Earns Industry Certification

Credibility and confidence came quickly for owners of First State Inventory through achievement of Certified Inventory Specialist designation.

Lewes, DE, August 22, 2017 --( Nationwide Inventory Professionals announces that Licensees Jim and Vince Stinchecom, owners of First State Inventory, have earned the designation of Certified Inventory Specialist (CIS) through the industry association.

Achieving this designation provides industry credentials that helps assure clients of professionalism. Founder of Nationwide Inventory Professionals, Mike Hartman stated, “We believe in the importance of continuing education, which led us to include the 1st year of membership in NICA for our Licensees. We also include the costs of the required courses and the certification exam in our Business Package. The Stinchecom brothers have a vast background in business and they both value continuing education.”

As the awareness of the home inventory industry grows, ancillary industry professionals are finding value in referring these professionals. CPAs recommend that their small business clients retain a current list of all assets, not just those being placed on a depreciation schedule. Insurance agents are encouraging policyholders to have a home or business inventory. Understanding the emotion an executor experiences when filing an inventory for the estate, attorneys refer inventory professionals to complete this daunting task.

“Investing in the Business Package offered by Nationwide Inventory Professionals was a great decision on many levels. One of the components we find extremely important is the certification. Starting a business requires a lot of work, and having this education and knowledge provided to us really shortened the learning curve,” explained Vince Stinchecom.

In addition to passing the courses, a requirement for certification and membership with NICA is to agree to conduct business according to the established industry Code of Ethics. Based in Lewes, Delaware, First State Inventory offers residential, small business, and estate inventory services.
