This class meets the requirement for the mandated Tier 1 training.

Students will be exposed to and practice the skills needed to become a successful Energy Auditor. These skills include: conducting a precise energy audit of the building, collecting the required data to create a comprehensive report on the energy consumption of the building and creating a detailed work order outlining the benefits and pay back of recommended energy conservation measures, understanding specifications and standards, performing building and safety diagnostics, recording/reporting findings and concerns and communicating effectively with the client.

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

Students will take one final assessment exam of their Energy Auditor skills. Upon successful completion of this exam, each student will receive a certificate of completion. Student learning will be assessed using quizzes, instructor observation, and a 36-question exam. This assessment is to benefit both the instructors and students in identifying areas requiring additional improvement.
