In partnership with the National Institute of Building Sciences, DOE has released national voluntary workforce guidelines.
Developed with feedback from industry experts, these guidelines provide a national framework for certification agencies across the country to roll out quality, consistent programs.
“As building technologies become more advanced, professionals need better training and certification options to increase the quality and scalability of our nation’s energy workforce,” said Kathleen Hogan, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency. “Employers, building owners and program administrators can also use these established guidelines to identify qualified workers who are trained to deliver energy savings.”
These guidelines are designed to enhance and streamline commercial building workforce training and certification programs.
