Join DOE for a Webinar on Home Energy Score
The U.S. Department of Energy recently announced the release of a new online simulation tool that provides free, targeted training and testing to individuals interested in providing the Home Energy Score – a standard energy efficiency assessment and score generated only by qualifying professionals. The Home Energy Score Simulation Training (the Sim) lets candidates walk through different virtual homes with numerous combinations of energy-related characteristics. The Sim trains candidates on skills specifically required to score homes, lets them learn at their own pace, and allows them to encounter a wide range of situations that reflect the variability of conditions in our nation’s homes. With this enhanced training and testing available, the program will now recognize a wide range of credentials, including those held by home inspectors, HVAC contractors, and other professionals in building-related fields.
The Home Energy Score team will host a webinar on March 4th from 2-3pm ET for anyone interested in learning more about the Home Energy Score, the Sim, and new credential requirements. Register for the webinar now.
