Weatherization and Renewable Energy


 

Course Description

Homes that are well protected from the weather should be a priority for any building professional.  The majority of problems stem from improper procedures and workmanship, but often the problem is found in the design of a home. This six hour video course will explore factors that contribute to exterior shell failure, and identify practical solutions that will preserve the integrity of the building envelope.

A comprehensive approach to resource and energy efficiency is the best method to achieve a resource and energy efficient building.  This course will help professionals identify important considerations and then apply those principles to a specific project. This 6-Hour course applies six hours towards Technical credit.
