John Staires, from the Oklahoma IAEI Chapter, talks about the importance of quality electrical education, “The Oklahoma Electrical Licensing Act requires all persons performing electrical work to prove competency through licensing. In order to become a licensed electrical journeyman or electrical contractor, you must successfully complete a comprehensive examination, but the competency requirements do not end there. Each licensed person must complete continuing education on the latest electrical codes and standards, as electrical products are constantly evolving and changing. The International Association of Electrical Inspectors was founded in 1928 to promote electrical safety. Through the years, IAEI has made major contributions to the development of codes and standards, and IAEI has long provided the finest and most comprehensive electrical training available. Training through IAEI ensures that the participant receives the latest information directly from the individuals who help develop the codes, and also that the training is accurate and consistent. All facets of the electrical industry are represented in IAEI membership, including installers, inspectors, manufacturers and third-party product evaluation organizations.”
At our tradeshow, you can see the latest innovations in electrical products and components, and get to ask questions about these products that no one buying something in a store or merely seeing installed would ever get to ask. Find out about product certification, see demonstrations, find out how new products and services relate to the NEC.
The IAEI Southern Section includes Oklahoma, NC, VA, GA, TX, FL, SC, TN, LA, MS and AL. IAEI members include electrical and building inspectors, electrical contractors, engineers, utility engineers, testing laboratory inspectors and technicians, electrical equipment and component manufacturing specialists and more.
