Has anyone had any experience with getting PEX certification as a non-professional? I'm replacing copper lines with pex (I am the home-owner). My local code states that the pex has to be installed by a factory-trained installer; apparently I need some type of training & certification. My inspector had thought that the retailers were obligated to offer this training but I posed the question to a few of the local retailers and got that wonderful blank-look I've come to know so well from them... I'm really surprised that I need this training for Pex when, apparently, I wouldn't need it for copper installation. But, I've got the code in front of me right now & the requirement seems very clear. I'm going to keep researching this locally to see if I can find an answer, but I thought I'd throw it out here to see if anyone else has had any experience with this. thanks!
