MDV-SEIA Partners with IEC-Chesapeake

MDV-SEIA members will be able to receive member discounted pricing on all Continuing Education Courses, including the NABCEP Solar PV and Solar Thermal Classes.

April 22, 2013 (Laurel, MD) – MDV-SEIA has established an agreement with the Independent Electrical Contractors Association Chesapeake Chapter (IECC) allowing our members to take advantage of a reduced partner membership with the IECC at a significantly reduced membership fee of $150.00 (Full membership is normally $1,395.00).

With this partnership MDV-SEIA members will be able to receive member discounted pricing on all Continuing Education Courses, including the NABCEP Solar PV and Solar Thermal Classes. This is especially valuable considering the Maryland Energy Administration recently updated regulations to require that solar installation companies obtain NABCEP certification prior to obtaining MEA grants. MDV-SEIA affiliate pricing is designed so members will easily recoup the cost of membership through savings in the training program.

While training was the primary driver for MDV-SEIA to partner with IECC, there are several other benefits of IECC membership through their affinity programs that include, but are not limited to:

o Banking Resources (Credit Union Membership)

o FedEx Program: Express, Ground, and Freight

o STAPLES Business Advantage Program

o Home Depot Discount Program

o Enterprise Fleet Services

o Fuel Savings

The partnership also provides members greater access to Continuing Education and Code Panels, such as the State Apprenticeship Councils in VA and MD, and will bolster our government affairs relations. For more information on the IECC, please visit their website at http://www.iecchesapeake.com.
