Quality Control Inspector (QCI) is based on a National Renewable Energy Laboratory/U.S. Department of Energy Job Task Analysis (JTA) of the same name. The course is broken down into three days of instruction focusing on the job description/duties outlined in the JTA.

Students will be exposed to and practice the skills needed to become a successful QCI. These skills include: conducting a precise inspection of the building, verifying the work performed against the work plan, observing the retrofit work, understanding specifications and standards, performing building and safety diagnostics, recording/reporting findings and concerns, specifying corrective actions, communicating effectively with the client, and determining the final pass/fail of the work performed.

This course is designed to prepare qualified students to take the Home Energy Professional Quality Control Inspector certification exam. State-of-the-art technology is used in both the classroom and the labs to provide students with a high quality learning environment.

Students will take one written exam of their QCI skills. Upon successful completion of the exam, each student will receive a certificate of completion. Student learning will be assessed using quizzes, instructor observation, and a 30-question exam. This assessment is to benefit both the instructors and students in identifying areas requiring additional improvement.
