    So how do you get started? I have been on the website so many times and feel so lost. Do I just contact the Rep for my state and go from there?

    I called the above number for Ohio. It took about a week to get "hooked up" with the inspector, but she is great at working around other peoples schedules. She will be at my place Wednesday 4/16/14 to do the inspection. The inspector is Candy, and is extremely nice and helpful!
