The International Ground Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA) is the recognized authority in the United States for developing standards and training for closed loop geothermal heat pump installations. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and IGSHPA are working together to train New Yorkers in the correct way to install geothermal heat pump systems.

Any company interested in receiving NYSERDA geothermal rebates must be certified through the IGSHPA Accredited Installer program. Right now, if the worker is a NYS resident, NYSERDA will pay for half the cost of the training.

IGSHPA offers other certification programs that will also be posted here.

Here is a list of the training courses scheduled. This list will be updated regularly.
