Propane training courses earn stamps of approval

April 11, 2011 By    

Training courses offered by the Propane Education & Research Council will now count toward National Association of the Remodeling Industry certification programs.

The free online courses help remodelers strengthen their skills and increase their expertise in propane-related applications and installation.

The 16 propane training courses, which cover topics such as selecting residential heating systems, specifying standby generators, off-grid living, retrofitting water heaters and understanding the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), qualify for one continuing education unit (CEU) each. Remodeling professionals are required to complete a total of 16 CEUs as part of NARI certification programs.

The IECC course also is approved by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and American Institute of Architects (AIA).

The course addresses the primary sections in the IECC, the national energy code that is adopted by states and local jurisdictions. Special emphasis is given to sections of the code that impact propane in new single-family construction along with steps to ensure construction projects are compliant.
