Collaboration to strengthen electrical training, resources
The International Code Council and the International Association of Electrical Inspectors will collaborate to strengthen electrical training and to develop and deliver services across their memberships
The International Code Council and the International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI) have formalized a service agreement that will allow both organizations to provide additional benefits to their respective memberships. The International Association of Electrical Inspectors has long been a part of the Code Council’s Preferred Provider network for electrical training. Last year, the two organizations signed an agreement to collaborate on publications, some of which are now featured on Digital Codes Premium, the Code Council’s platform for digital codes.
This new joint effort will open the door for the Code Council and IAEI to collectively share subject matter expertise in order to strengthen and cultivate new training content and resources while exploring ways to enhance member value through joint membership certification offerings. The International Association of Electrical Inspectors and the Code Council will work together in expanding IAEI member participation on Code Council electrical exam development committees as well as developing and distributing new co-branded publications for the electrical industry. The Code Council will continue to assist IAEI with the digitization of its electrical publications and training content. The two organizations will continue to work jointly to support the ongoing development and adoption of the National Fire Protection Association’s National Electrical Code.
“Both organizations’ shared commitment to public safety can be traced back nearly a century. This current agreement builds on past successful collaborations and further leverages the strengths of each association to the benefit of its members,” said Mark Johnson, executive vice president and director of business development for the International Code Council. “Working hand-in-hand with IAEI’s leadership in electrical safety and education will allow us to better engage and serve our members.”
“The IAEI Board of Directors is pleased to expand upon our already mutually beneficial relationship with the Code Council through this new service agreement,” said Rudy Garza, president and chief executive officer IAEI. “IAEI values all its collaborative partnership agreements with other organizations in the life safety space. However, this new agreement with the Code Council stands out as it will allow IAEI to reach a new and broader audience with our publications, training and services. It is no doubt a huge win-win for both organizations.”
