Summary

The current training center at the University of Central Florida (UCF) has good capabilities for training on diagnostic tools and methods to assess problems in Florida homes. However, there are a number of curriculum and equipment shortcomings to making it a complete training center for equipping students for the weatherization job market. This project's goal is to expand and enhance the FSEC so that it can provide comprehensive training to those involved in home weatherization. New lab models will be built to demonstrate advanced air sealing and insulation techniques. The lab models will also offer training to contractors providing energy retrofits for weatherization. New curriculum materials will adopt the Department of Energy (DOE) standardized weatherization curriculum and will also integrate Florida-specific weatherization protocols. Advanced training classes will also be developed for inspectors and weatherization contractors.
