Considerations for Implementation

Hiring a Circuit Rider

Depending on existing relationships in your state, a search process may necessary or there may already be a relationship with a codes expert who would be a good fit for the circuit rider position.

Advertising Training Programs

Once training programs are scheduled, marketing is critical to get the word out and ensure participation. Communication strategies to consider include your state’s website, monthly newsletters, email blasts, and use of social media such as Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Outreach to groups like International Code Council and ASHRAE chapters, state and local home builder associations, and related stakeholder organizations can also increase awareness.

Running Training Programs

Implementing your program will include ongoing technical assistance as well as additional trainings such as webinars, in person trainings, and online trainings depending on the state’s capacity and needs. See the SEDAC training website .
