Course Description:
2005 Indiana Residential Code Chapter 11 and RES Check 

Course Outline
1) 2012 Indiana Energy Code Review
2) 2012 Indiana Energy Code Review as it applies to remodels/additions

3) REM/RATE Performance Method software demonstration
4) RESCheck Total US Method software demonstration

This course will help building officials understand the procedure for working with builders to receive their Energy Code certification documents and it will focus on all the construction requirements for both new home construction and remodels.  The class will gain knowledge in energy efficient framing, proper insulation installation, appropriate R-values and U-values and the 3 methods for compliance (Performance, Total Ua, Prescriptive).  The participants will be able to identify the proper procedure for compliance and the most commonly utilized compliance path for new home construction vs. remodels.  The participants will be able to perform field inspections where they can identify whether or not the home has proper framing, insulation, and other code components.

Practical Application of the 2009 Indiana Electric Code to Solar Energy - This course reviews the National Electric Code (NEC), paying particular attention to Articles 690 and 705.  It also covers equipment listing and labeling requirements, circuit calculations, wiring methods, grounding, overcurrent protection, system labeling requirements, and common code violations.  Electrical contractors, installers and inspectors will learn about code requirements and best practices for photovoltaic (PV) systems.  This course is also designed to satisfy four of NABCEP's required hours in the "code relevant" continuing education category of renewable energy technology, and continuing education units (CEUs) for those with licenses in the electrical trades, like:

Master Electricians
Journeyman Electricians
Residential Master Electricians
Residential Journeyman Electricians
Industrial Journeyman Electricians

Beginning Electricians
Commercial Electrical Inspectors
UDC-Electrical Inspectors

Course Objectives
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the components and configurations of the four basic PV system types; utility interconnected with battery back-up, stand alone, and direct use PV
  • Explain the contents and importance of NEC Articles 690 and 705, and how they relate to PV systems
  • Demonstrate proper labeling requirements for PV systems
  • Inspect PV systems and determine their level of code compliance
  • Explain line and load side connections and requirements
  • Perform circuit calculations for conductors and overcurrent devices.
  • Recognize outdoor conductor, raceway, and enclosure ratings
  • Explain PV system grounding requirements and concerns
  • Identify common code violations

After registration is successfully submitted a confirmation email will be sent to the email address entered during registration.


Travis Dunn performed hundreds of existing home energy audits and new home inspections during his first few years at TSI Energy Solutions.  Since then, Mr. Dunn has performed many building diagnostic inspections and has taken over the position of Chief Marketing Officer, where he has worked closely with builders, utility companies and homeowners to promote energy efficiency and resolve energy efficiency issues.

Mr. Dunn was one of the first certified energy raters in Indiana and signed up the first major production builder in Indiana for 100% HERS ratings, then later signed up the first major production builder for 100% Energy Star certification.  He created a guaranteed heating and cooling cost program for the first HERS builder, then later created a Moisture Control Program for custom builders.  Mr. Dunn has secured energy efficiency program contracts with large production builders like Crossman Communities, Pulte Homes, Centex, Drees, Fischer, Gunstra, CP Morgan, Ryland, M/I, Beazer, Tempest, Davis and many others which has helped TSI to perform energy efficiency inspections on at least 20% of the new homes built in Central Indiana over the last 15 years.

Alex Jarvis has been working in the renewable energy field since 2006.  Alex teaches PV classes based on the NEC for the MREA throughout the Midwest and writes about renewable energy in Indiana.  Alex is a NABCEP Certified PV Installer and holds a B.A. in Economics from Indiana University.  He and his company design and install both grid-tied and battery-based systems, and conduct Operations & Maintenance work on MW sized PV sites.
