More than 200,000 U.S. service members return to civilian life each year.1 EEBA is a supporter of our Veterans and encourages their participation in moving the home performance sector forward. If you are a Veteran working in the construction industry, EEBA may be able to offer a scholarship for one of our upcoming energy efficiency education sessions.
The Houses That Work educational program is based on Department of Energy Building America research and consists of seven different modules ranging from Indoor Air Quality to Water Management and High Performance Mechanical Systems.
In addition, our new course, “The HERS Associate & Taking the Performance Path,” provides an introduction to RESNET and the HERS Index and relates the principles of building science as they apply to HERS.
“The many training opportunities we provide across the country each year offer a variety of curriculum, and the training is always customized for the climate and building practices of each location,” says EEBA Executive Director, Nancy Bakeman. “Whether you are new to the building industry, or have years of experience, we come to you with the most up-to-date, cutting-edge content to help you build better, more comfortable, more durable, and more efficient homes.”
Thousands of building professionals have benefitted from Houses That Work classes and have gained a better understanding of the “house-as-a-system” approach. Extensive climate-specific content is provided during the sessions including measurement tools, design concepts, application demonstrations and case studies.
And how is this program different from other programs offering energy efficiency education? Partnerships. EEBA brings together the knowledge from manufacturers, building science experts, and tradespeople to create practical solutions.
