I'm at the ENERGY STAR train-the-trainer training in Raleigh for the next two days. This is the second of 4 such events that are scheduled for the first half of this month to get the Version 3 Partner training curriculum delivered to HERS training providers.

At least that was the original intent. After the first training in Chicago last week, the curriculum developers decided to 'aggregate feedback on the checklist field guides and make updates to ensure that these resources are as useful as possible.' They want trainers to delay offering ENERGY STAR classes until February so they have time to modify the curriculum.

It'll be interesting to see how the class goes over the next two days. I'm sure I'll be blogging about it, but I wanted to open up a discussion here, too. Do you have any questions about Version 2.5 or Version 3 that you'd like me to ask here at the training? If so, post them in this discussion or email them to me privately (abailes@energyvanguard.com).

If you want to read more about Version 3, go to:
