JPL Wins Award for Online Training


Pennsylvania Construction Codes Academy Online TrainingThe Summit Creative Award competition recognizes JPL and the Pennsylvania Construction Codes Academy (PCCA) for outstanding interactive training. The course, Relocated Manufactured Habitability Assessment, provides training to manufactured housing inspectors in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

In order to expand their offerings into online training, PCCA worked with the Learning Solutions team at JPL to create a new interactive eLearning course featuring an avatar building inspector.

The one-hour course covers Act 40, the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act, and includes knowledge review questions throughout to determine the pass/fail status of the inspector.

The course is narrated by the avatar, Sam. Sam takes users on a driving tour through some housing communities and shows specific examples of what to look for when inspecting these homes. From time to time, he uses his laptop in the truck as he travels to explain more details about these homes and what to look for. His conversational instruction makes the training easy to understand and engaging.

Throughout the training, Sam helps learners identify the difference between new and relocated manufactured housing, recognize some key points of the Habitability Guidelines, and recall inspection elements to look for in relocated manufactured housing. Compelling visuals of homes show inspectors what passes and what doesn’t.

JPL is currently working with PCCA to create a second eLearning course, International Fire Code and its Proper Enforcement.
