Course Description

     Weatherization: Students successfully completing this course will gain confidence in their ability to reduce building envelope failure using proven methods of construction.  Building homes that are well protected from the weather is important for all building professionals.  The majority of problems stem from improper procedures and workmanship.  Sometimes a problem is found in the design of a home, adding to disputes over poor workmanship.  The very best defense against moisture issues in a home is in training the workforce in how moisture enters into the internal structural areas of a home and what procedures to use in the many tasks involved to head off these problems.

     Energy Efficient Building: Even as technological innovation creates new construction possibilities, incorporating energy-efficiency into building projects can not only provide a better quality of life but also protect the environment.  A comprehensive approach to resource and energy efficiency is the best method to achieve a resource and energy efficient building.  This portion of the course will help builders identify important considerations and then apply those principles to a specific project.
