Program Description

The two day comprehensive Inspector Workshops are designed for Code Enforcing Inspectors for city, and state governments. The Inspector’s course would benefit installers, developers, architects, manufacturers, distributors, dealers, HVAC contractors, trenching/drilling contractors, and anyone who desires a working knowledge of how to inspect this innovative technology. Representatives from public utilities, private utilities, and rural electric cooperatives can also benefit from training. Information gathered from the workshop can help utility representatives serve as a source of information regarding money-saving concepts. After successful completion of the inspector’s workshop you will receive a years’ membership with IGSHPA. Upon passing the IGSHPA inspector’s exam and certification approval you will be classified as an IGSHPA Certified Inspector of GSHP systems.
