For 2015, IREC has released a new, expanded Photovoltaic Online Training Course for Code Officials. Developed as part of IREC’s role as the National Administrator of the SITN, this free online tool was thoughtfully designed to aide code officials who inspect and permit residential solar PV systems.
This updated version of the course has been amended for code compliance with the 2008, 2011 and 2014 versions of the National Electric Code (NEC). In addition, it includes a new lesson covering the 2012 International Fire, Building and Residential Codes and improvements have been made to the user experience within the course.
For a nominal fee, the International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI) continues to offer CEUs for those who successfully score at 80% or better on all of the lesson assessment quizzes.
