Remote Training Opportunities

Hi All, 

During the shutdowns for COVID-19, we're hearing that many contractors and other in-field installers are looking for online/remote training opportunities. Relevate topics would be building science, BPI, other weatherization certs, installation guidelines, maybe relevant softwares, etc. 

Does anyone have anything they've been keeping an eye on or planning on participating in during down time?

    The DOE Weatherization Assistance Program Trainers' Consortium put together a list of online training and other ideas for keeping people productive while working remotely. You should be able to access it here:

    Note that there are 3 tabs.

    It includes a couple of the resources already listed in previous responses and a bunch more. Courses are sortable by worker category using our WAP designations of Retrofit Installer/Technician (RIT), Crew Leader (CL), Energy Auditor (EA), and Quality Control Inspector (QCI), as well as a column for admin/management workers.



  • Haley,

    Earth Advantage has developed a number of online trainings over the past few years. Currently, most of the online content is geared to the real estate industry. Largely, it's material designed to allow them to better understand the value of energy efficiency and green building. You can find those here:

    Later this year we will be bringing more contractor trainings online as well.

    Thanks for prompting these posts!
