IGSHPA Accredited Installer (AI)

Become an IGSHPA Accredited Geothermal Installer. This is a foundational course for all geothermal installers, drillers, and designers.

Who should attend?

IGSHPA Installer Workshops are designed for GSHP installers, contractors, dealers, home builders, manufacturers, distributors, architects, heating cooling mechanical engineers, trenching/water well drilling contractors, and anyone who desires a working knowledge of this innovative technology. Representatives from public utilities, private utilities, and rural electric cooperatives can also benefit from training. Information gathered from the workshops can help utility representatives serve as a source of information regarding money-saving concepts.


Upon successful completion of the workshop and passing the IGSHPA installer’s exam, you will be issued IGSHPA accreditation as an installer of GSHP systems. You will receive an installer’s card and a certificate for 3 years.

HeatSpring has offered IGSHPA Certification since 2007

This was the very first HeatSpring class we ever offered. Dr. Charles Remund, author of the IGSHPA manual, taught the first class in May 2007 on the campus of Babson College in Wellesley, MA. The course was a huge success, we had such an amazing time that we decided to do more of it. 100,000+ course enrollments later, we're still going.
