Online Continuing Education – Get the GREEN Edge
The Home Efficiency curriculum has been developed by professionals that have taken the best of a diverse range of Energy Auditing and ‘Green’ training programs. Our team consists of leading Architects and certified Energy Auditors from Building Performance Institute (BPI) and Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET), plus seasoned Home Inspectors, Mechanical Engineers, MBAs, PHDs, and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED AP) Accredited Professionals.
The focus is on Return on Investment to reduce utility costs and increase the health of homes across the country. The curriculum is focused on teaching individuals the most cost–effective ways for homeowners to create energy savings and healthier homes. Students learn about the Return on Investment approach and the home as an ‘organism’ vs. as an ‘object’. Students also learn the techniques that can save a homeowner $500 with just an hour of tune-ups that require no tools or expertise at all.
