CEU 0.1 
Quality Insulation Installation   I-REN is proud to collaborate with Energy Code Ace to offer this training on Quality Insulation Installation. This course focuses on prescriptive quality insulation installation (QII) requirements in the 2022 Energy Code for new single-family buildings of any size and additions greater than 700 ft². It helps designers and architects create projects that meet QII requirements and helps energy consultants clarify the minimum requirements and schedule of inspections the team needs to succeed when the Certificate of Compliance form (CF1R and LMCI) calls for QII. Contractors will learn how to coordinate with HERS raters and subcontractors on inspection dates and other QII requirements. Building departments will learn how to support QII projects at plan check and inspection to ensure the QII process goes smoothly. HERS raters will learn about communicating with the construction team on how to prepare a project to meet QII requirements during HERS inspections.
