Event description

Description

Illinois Home Performance is sponsoring an upcoming Home Energy Score assessor training. Home Energy Score provides home occupants with credible information about a home’s energy use. Developed by the US DOE, the score reads like a “miles-per-gallon” rating for a car and is a standard assessment of energy-related assets. If you hold a BPI certification, are looking to add another feature to your standard audit or inspection package, or want to offer Home Energy Score as a stand alone service that is offered to homeowners, this training is for you.
Note: You must hold a relevant credential as a prerequisite for this course. For a complete list of accepted credentials, click here.

Why should you be interested in Home Energy Score?
1. Increased credibility with a certification through the Department of Energy.
2. Increased point of sale value of your services.
3. More and more homeowners are becoming interested in the efficiency of their homes - the Home Energy Score offers substantial insight into the savings available to a home through certain improvements.


Shortly after registration, the attendee will be sent a login and password for the Department of Energy's Simulation Training (SIM). After receiving the credentials, the attendee is expected to develop a basic understanding of the software (about 4 hours of work). There will be in-person support during the course to field questions and assist with the learning process.

The day after this classroom training (December 7th) there will be a unique opportunity to attend a small-group mentorship session in a home, where the instructor will walk through the Home Energy Score generation process. Once this mentorship is complete, the student will officially be a certified assessor. This hands-on session is not required but is heavily encouraged.


Day 1: December 6th, 9am-5pm: In-Class Home Energy Score Training
538 Busse Hwy
Park Ridge, IL 60068
*Participants will need to bring with them a laptop, preferably the one used for SIM practice.

Day 2: December 7th, 9:00am-12:00pm: Hands-on Home Walk Through
Location TBD


When these steps are satisfactorily completed, the attendee will be listed as an official assessor.

Upon the completion of the course, the attendee will be able to self-report 6 BPI CEUs and 6 NATE CEUs.
