The NSCA Codes & Compliance Committee provides a forum for members to ask questions and find answers to the issues they’re most concerned about in regard to compliance.
Ask our committee a question and the most appropriate subject-matter expert will provide you with direction or advice. We may point you to other resources on NSCA’s website or to the leading authorities on the topic as well.
Our goal is to provide direction and best practices while respecting the local authority having jurisdiction (AHJ). The general advice we provide may still require you to check local ordinances, codes, or permitting regulations.

Is there an opportunity here is to create an industry certification that is relevantly code/standard-based; one that takes into account not only the generalities of what AVC integrators do (conduit, basic electrical theory, etc.) but also some of the specifics that aren’t covered in the typical trade exam (networking, audio/video/lighting/control systems 101, POE, etc.)?
I think it would be great. Imagine if it were a viewed as a pre-cursor to the typical contractor’s exam. As we review low voltage license exams around the country they all seem to have the same general questions. It would be fantastic if that were nationwide and include Canada.
