The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) and GreenPlumbersUSA have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO)
and GreenPlumbersUSA have signed a Memorandum of
Understanding (MoU) to establish a collaborative arrangement to enhance the
technical content of GreenPlumbers’ training and
accreditation modules by extracting provisions contained within IAPMO’s Uniform
Codes. IAPMO and GreenPlumberswill also partner to
develop additional programs and services that will advance the sustainability
goals of both organizations.
Through the collaborative agreement, GreenPlumberswill adapt their training/accreditation modules to follow provisions as
outlined by the 2009 editions of IAPMO’s Uniform Plumbing Code, Uniform
Mechanical Code, Uniform Swimming Pool, Spa and Hot Tub Code, Uniform Solar
Energy Code and the 2010 IAPMO Green Plumbing and Mechanical Code Supplement.
IAPMO and GreenPlumberswill also develop a
Green Plumbing and Mechanical Inspector Certification Program derived from the
Uniform Codes and the GreenPlumberscurriculum,
with a target date for delivery in late 2009. GreenPlumbershas provided IAPMO with an exclusive Conservation/Foundation Partnership with
regard to GreenPlumberstraining and accreditation
modules and programs.
Moving forward, the organizations will explore the feasibility of mutually
creating an Engineer/Specifier certification module and training program.
GreenPlumbersUSA is a national training and
accreditation program that assists plumbers in understanding their role in the
environment and public health. For more information, visitwww.greenplumbersusa.com.
