If you are be interested in national certified residential energy efficiency training there is a short time offer of 90% tuition subsidy through KCTCS for those who qualify. The 40 hour course is being offered in multiple places around the state. If you pass the computer and field exams you will get a Building Performance Institute Building Analyst Certification. The typical tuition is $1450. The short term offer is $145. This training gives the professional the credentials to work as an evaluator in the Kentucky Home Performance program.
This program, KyHomePerformance.org, has big rebates or loans for existing single family homeowners to invest in their energy efficiency. If you have clients you are guiding through a renovation or addition, this could be a great resource. Not only is it possible to get $2,000 for a client, you can get an evaluation and a contractor list which will make efficiency, safety, and thermal comfort a priority.
