Demand for home energy raters in California increased in July 2014. That’s when the state implemented an updated version of its building energy efficiency standards, enforcing stricter requirements for third-party testing and verification of home energy performance.
Workforce training for the home performance industry has been a mainstay of CCSE since 2012. Through the GETUP Energy Upgrade Internship Program, CCSE provides classroom and hands-on field training with the goal of providing the industry with trained entry-level professionals. With an average class size of 11 students, GETUP provides personalized training with CCSE’s home performance experts.
Loren Fink, a November 2013 GETUP graduate, is quite pleased with the training program.
