Learning to inspect Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) systems for residential and commercial properties will keep you competitive in a market forced to deal with rising energy costs and resource depletion. Inspector accreditation enables you to anticipate important critical elements of installation and offers customers more assurance of a low-maintenance, economical, and environmentally friendly alternative for their geo comfort needs. With more than 35 years of experience teaching these workshops, accrediting thousands of installers, drillers, engineers and setting the industry standard, IGSHPA pioneered training in GSHP installation.
Who should attend?
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 workshops 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. You will then receive an inspector’s card and a certificate.
