It’s a good and valid question.
If you’re curious what certification is, you can see here: What is the IGSHPA Certification? But more importantly, what is the value of IGSHPA certification in the marketplace – who is it valuable for and why would one bother to take the training?
While the certification doesn’t necessarily allow you to pull permits (see the review the geothermal license, certifications, and permitting) it does provide you with the knowledge and confidence to sell a job and then perform the design and installation. In addition, many states are requiring IGSHPA certification to to apply for incentives. Connecticut requires it, and Minnesota will provide higher rebates for IGSHPA Certified installers.
