Energy Auditor (EA) Course (Virtual & In-Person Lab)
November 30 @ 8:00 am - December 11 @ 4:30 pm EST$2995
This course is based on a National Renewable Energy Laboratory/U.S. Department of Energy Job Task Analysis (JTA) of the same name. This two-week course teaches students to evaluate the energy efficiency, health, and safety of a home and to use diagnostic equipment to identify areas for energy savings. Students learn to use modeling software to produce an audit report and develop a prioritized scope of work for the customer. Students will take one written and three hands-on tests at the conclusion of the class. Upon successful completion of the course work and tests, each student will receive a certificate of completion. Designed to prepare students to challenge the BPI Home Energy Professional (HEP) Energy Auditor certification exams and is suitable for those with little or no experience in the field.
We are revising the Energy Auditor curriculum to be a combination of virtual classroom and hands-on lab time. Part of the class will be delivered online via virtual classroom and then students will be scheduled to come to the training center for hands-on lab time. This will allow us to stagger the students’ in-person lab time so as not to exceed our COVID restrictions for in-person capacity. Both the virtual classroom and lab time will be within the Nov 30 – Dec 11 class time. Development of the curriculum is still underway and we will communicate specifics about the schedule with those registered for the class.
This course is approved for 18.75 BPI CEUs.
