USSolar Adds International Fire Code to Its Advanced Solar PV Training

fire-restoration-300x300[1]

It’s a curious facet of life that professions like massage therapy and hair styling require licensing while solar PV installation lacks any unified training requirements.

Working with hair is not without its dangers, but a poorly installed PV system can destroy property, cause injuries, and worse – much much worse.

People can actually lose their lives because some inexperienced installer rushes a job without following any of the proper safety guidelines.

This is not a post about the importance of accredited solar PV training.  We’ve already covered that in great detail in prior posts.  Nor is this a diatribe about the importance of electrical code training, which is another frequent theme of ours.

When you sign on with USSolar Institute, you already receive extensive exposure in both of the above areas.  They come standard with all of our classes.

No.  This post is about the importance of fire code training – an incredibly important but overlooked aspect of successful solar PV installation – especially for larger projects.  Fires can and do happen when installers don’t follow basic safety protocols.

We’ve recently added international fire code (IFC) training to PV301 – our advanced course for those who want to elevate their credentials and truly distinguish themselves in an industry where certification is optional but highly prized.

PV301 expands on many of the topics covered in PV201, with greater attention devoted to Florida’s Building Code and the National Electric Code (NEC) – 2 of the most comprehensive codes on the planet.

The addition of IFC training truly rounds out the course, helping you hone your installation skills and develop safety knowledge far in excess of what most of your peers will ever bring to the table.

We hope that you’re as excited about this expanded offering as we are.  NEC, building codes, and IFC should come standard with every advanced solar PV course in the country.  Unfortunately, this is not the case.  Nowhere near it, in fact.  Because remember – training isn’t even required in most states, and thus, many schools gloss over the safety aspects entirely and simply focus on preparing students for NABCEP exams.

But at USSolar, we like to think of ourselves as safety instructors who specialize in solar – and not the other way around.

Just a quick note – PV201 is a prerequisite for our PV301 course.  Sessions for both modules are offered throughout the year, with special discounts offered to qualifying veterans (click here to read more about the VRAP program).
