Summary

Currently, most of the local weatherization workforce is required to successfully complete a certification program, which includes both in-class and some in-field components. However, this training does not necessarily include a standardized curriculum and it is limited by the characteristics of the homes recruited for the in-field portions. Additionally, opportunities for other hands-on training involving a wider range of conditions have been limited. The goal of this project is to develop an integrated training center that will prepare, disseminate, and support training of the energy efficiency workforce in Illinois. This will be achieved by opening a training facility with classroom space and hands-on demonstration equipment, enhancing the curriculum for local agency staff, and developing a curriculum for contractors hired by the agencies to perform weatherization measures. The training program will be delivered through the Illinois Community College Network and aims to make a considerable lasting impact by creating training environments and a delivery system that will be available throughout the State of Illinois.
