Energy Auditor Training Curriculum
Energy auditors perform detailed building inspections and make cost effective recommendations about improving a building’s energy efficiency. An audit can result in jobs for plumbers,
electricians, carpenters, insulators, HVACR (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration) service technicians, and others.
Making American homes and buildings more energy efficient presents unprecedented opportunities for saving American communities millions of dollars and creating new jobs. Despite
the economic and environmental benefits of improving energy efficiency, a major barrier has prevented energy auditing on a national scale. The current workforce does not contain
enough experienced auditors to meet the current marketplace demand.
In order to meet the current workforce demand for energy auditors the Federal government worked with industry to develop this training program designed to increase the number
of energy auditors nationally.
This 800-contact hour residential energy auditing curriculum is intended for use by educational institutions or within industry training programs.
The modular design allows institutions to utilize the entire curriculum or select specific subject modules to complement any existing HVACR program. The program can augment
current HVACR curriculum and add skill sets to HVAC students, making them more valuable to future employers.
The Residential Energy Auditor Curriculum contains: reference text recommendations, instructor guides with learning objectives and student outcomes defined, instructor talking points,
PowerPoint presentations with speaker’s notes, review questions, lab exercises, and performance evaluations.
The residential energy auditor program is available as a complete package, in modules, or can be customized to fit your training needs.
