Manufactured Home Installation – Online Training
MHEI is the place to go for manufactured home installation. George Porter of Manufactured Housing Resources teaches the courses. Together, MHEI and Porter have created the online training program. With humor and detailed explanations of the installation process, these courses will take the installer from the first to the last step of installing a manufactured home.
- The MHIA of 2000 requires manufactured home installers to be trained and licensed. Most states run their own licensing program but, currently, the federal government oversees installer training and licensing in 14 states. MHEI is the only approved provider of online installer training for these states.
