DOE Webinars: Workforce Guidelines for Home Energy Upgrades
December 01, 2010
The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is conducting a series of Webinars to explain the origin, goals and schedule for the development of the Workforce Guidelines for Home Energy Upgrades.
The guidelines are designed to strengthen the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), and foster the growth of a high-quality home energy retrofit industry and a skilled and credentialed workforce. They can be adopted by the WAP network and retrofit programs nationwide seeking to increase the consistency and effectiveness of the work performed—and utilized by—training providers to improve course curriculum and training materials.
During the Webinar, you will learn how the draft guidelines were developed, how you can contribute, and what's in store with respect to implementation.
The presentation will take place twice:
- Thursday, December 9, 3―4 p.m. Eastern Standard Time
- Wednesday, December 15, 2―3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
Title: Workforce Guidelines for Home Energy Upgrades: Update & Opportunities to Engage.
Presenter: Benjamin Goldstein, project lead, Workforce Guidelines for Home Energy Upgrades, U.S. Department of Energy, EERE.
