This 40-hour course is brought to you jointly by the N.C. Clean Energy Technology Center and Everblue. It is one of eight courses housed under the award-winning Renewable Energy Technologies Diploma Series and teaches the concepts and skills necessary to provide homeowners and home builders a detailed analysis of energy consumption and money-saving energy conservation strategies as well as all the information needed to take the RESNET Rater Certification test.

The live classroom setting allows each student to complete two energy models. On the first model, the student uses a set of building drawings to predict energy performance of a home that is not yet built. On the second model, they apply actual test data gained during field training to build a model of an existing home. Both models can be used to identify the most cost-effective energy improvement options available to a homeowner or home builder. The class includes a thorough review of basic energy concepts, field experience with blower door testing and duct blasting, training on the latest version of rating software, and performing a home energy rating and entering the data into REM/Rate.

Topics Covered:

Basics of Building Science
Basics of Energy Auditing
Blower Door Testing Procedures Duct Blaster Testing
Construction Flaws
Combustion Safety
