The Importance of Certified PVC-Coated Conduit Installation
A proper PVC-coated conduit installation can have great impact on an electrical project’s safety and financial investment. That’s why when specifiers select Plasti-Bond PVC-coated conduit, they often require an installer who is certified by the manufacturer.
Your installer certification card tells project contractors that you, or those you supervise, have the professional expertise to properly install this important product. It is also proof that you understand what is necessary to avoid costly product failures during installation or following completion of the project. No owner, end-user or contractor wants to discover that their investment needs to be replaced prematurely.
Why Become A Certified Installer?
Proper and efficient installation of PVC-coated rigid metal conduit and fittings is a critical goal for every electrical raceway project. As a certified installer, you can ensure installations are safe and meet all specifications. This results in cost-savings for you and your clients.
As a result of your installation training, you may also discover additional financial benefits. The efficient and accurate completion of an installation often allows you to move on to your next project faster, optimizing your schedule, manpower and assets.
Plus, earning your certification just makes good business sense. Your certification card can open doors to more jobs than installers who are not certified.
Another benefit is that your installation training provides the latest on industry products, technology and standards. Installers certified in Plasti-Bond product installation also have access to continued educational opportunities. Plus, you will learn tips and advanced installation techniques that can really assist you on the jobsite.
One example would be Plasti-Bond’s PVC-Coated SpeedCouple. This innovative fitting lets you install faster in tight spaces without having to turn the elbow. Your installation training would also tell you that the SpeedCouple is most useful in the close quarters of an underground space.
Professional hands-on training and certified installation of PVC-coated conduit and fittings can also reduce human error. Errors can lead to rework or product replacement, major delays for contractors and an increased potential for liability and property damage. Knowing and utilizing proper installation techniques from the start is the best way to protect PVC-coated conduit systems from harsh corrosive environments.
Following training and your installer certification exam, you will be issued an official certified installer card. Cards are valid for two years from the date of issue. The expiration date ensures everyone installing PVC-coated conduit remains current on the latest installation techniques and tools.
Installer Certification is free of charge and is available at the job site, contractor’s office, our facility, or virtually for convenience and ease of scheduling.
