Event Description

Understanding Home Energy Training Credentials
Tuesday, January 10, 2012
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EST


Following up on ACI’s successful Home Energy Trainer Conference recently held in Charlotte, NC, this webinar continues the dialogue about industry certifications and accreditation. IREC/ISPQ credentialing has provided a tremendous framework for the expansion of high quality renewable energy and energy efficiency/weatherization training. Through its partnership with the U.S. Dept of Energy and the recent development of National Worker Certifications, IREC/ISPQ credentialing has established a critical avenue for validating the quality of your training organization or you as an individual trainer. BPI’s nationwide certification program is also important to home energy trainers, especially as it moves toward accreditation by ANSI for its personnel certifications under ISO 17024. It’s more important than ever to understand the different roles that IREC and BPI play in the training landscape. Don’t miss this opportunity to interact with key people from these organizations.

By attending this webinar, participants will:

  • Understand how home energy training credentials are critical to growing the workforce
  • Become familiar with the process and requirements of becoming accredited by IREC
  • Learn how the expansion of BPI’s nationwide certification program, and meeting the ISO 17024 standard, will affect industry trainers and examiners.
