TESTING ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS
Monday, January 21st, 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
This course is designed to educate home inspectors on how to safely test electrical systems. The standard of practice will be discussed, and all attendees will be made aware that performing this service is optional and not required. This is only a basic training to help inspectors decide if this is a service they wish to add to their inspections, and make them aware that additional training may be necessary to become proficient at this. Examples will be given to show the benefits of providing this service and what potential, serious concerns can be discovered by taking even a few simple tests.
