Virtual Electrical Inspections provide an on-time dependable inspection for the electrical contractors of Washington State. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to hear from the program’s developers and supervisors as they present:

A brief history of why LnI developed the Virtual Electrical Inspections program

How the Virtual Electrical Inspections program works

A real life example of a recorded Virtual Electrical Inspection

A demonstration of how to navigate the LnI website

Qualifications to be eligible for virtual inspections

How the department uses Skype during virtual inspections

How to prepare for a virtual inspection

How to schedule a Virtual Electrical Inspection

If you are an electrical contractor, installer, or electrical engineer in the state of Washington, this presentation will arm you with the tools and knowledge to do your job better and more efficiently.  There is a great opportunity to expand this program and make electrical permit fee dollars stretch as far as possible while still providing the assurance that electrical systems are essentially free from hazard and the practical safeguarding of persons and property, which are the primary reasons for the national electrical code.
