My name is Darren Smith. I was born in Halifax. I have also lived in Regina, Ottawa, Saint John, Fredericton and Dawson City, Yukon.
I spent 2 years studying science at UNB Saint John before switching to business and attending UNB Fredericton.
After finishing my studies in Fredericton I worked in the construction field and eventually started my own contracting company.
I performed my first home inspection on Charlois Court in Dartmouth on June 29, 1995. Since then I have performed well over 7000 inspections. That equates to well over 10 000 hours of field experience.
I am a member of the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors (CAHPI). I have taken courses through Carson & Dunlop, CAHPI, Wood Energy Technical Transfer (WETT) and the Nova Scotia Building Officials Association (NSBOA).
