Becoming an electrical inspector is a great option for those who are looking for a good trade career with decent pay and a good availability of jobs. Electrical inspectors are not electricians and aren't required to know how to fix what they find. They just are trained to spot the problems.
Depending on your background and the courses you take, as well as whether you specialize in home inspection or commercial ones, salary can range from around $48,000USD per year up to around $173,000USD per year.
It really depends on whom you are working for. For example, insurance companies often keep electrical inspectors on hand to help with home insurance claims and those relating to commercial properties, and they pay quite well.
