Water well contractors interested in entering the geothermal heat pump well construction market can take a one-day course on June 20 in Muncie, Ind.
Geothermal well construction generally uses the same equipment and
requires many of the same skills used by water well contractors. However, some
additional training is needed, as well as learning new approaches to managing
equipment, and human and financial resources.
At this course offered by the National Ground Water Association (NGWA),
participants will learn how geothermal well construction differs from
traditional well construction, what changes to consider in a geothermal
business model, geothermal well construction terminology, the importance of
soil and geologic formations in geothermal installations, grouting applications
and geothermal benefits for consumers.
The course – Geothermal Heat Pump Well Construction 101 – is worth 0.75
continuing education units to water well system contractors currently holding
NGWA certifications. Also, the new NGWA Voluntary Certification Program
Geothermal Heat Pump Exam may be offered following the class to pre-registrants
who indicate an interest by June 12.
