Important note on Remote Inspections

Only Senior Inspectors may conduct remote inspections. Only certain members may receive a remote inspection. For details, review our Remote Inspections Policy. If you think you qualify to receive a remote inspection, please send a note to Erin at [email protected] Please also note: All remote inspections are coordinated by CNG staff, who will invite newer members to observe, both to add a layer of transparency and to take advantage of this opportunity for them to learn the ropes.

As always, don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.
