Event Description

The Sustainability Institute's CharlestonWISE program offers a unique training for home energy retrofit professionals January 11 through 14, 2012 at Trident Technical College in Charleston, SC.

‘Energy Efficiency Improvements for Historic Structures’ is a specialized training opportunity for Energy Efficiency Improvements for Historic Structures in Warm and Humid Climates. Energy efficiency or preservation professionals who would like to learn more about how to properly assess and improve these houses for efficiency and comfort benefits are invited to attend.

In addition to enhancing your own knowledge of regional historic houses, taking this program, coupled with a BPI BA, will make you one of a select pool of professionals able to work on energy assessments and improvements through the CharlestonWISE and CharlestonWISE Impact Project programs.

What better location for this class than historic Charleston, SC, the first city in the US to enact historic preservation. The restaurants are pretty good too.

The cost is $599
