Professional organizations in the industry require that people maintain their skills and knowledge with regular approved training. Our courses qualify for earning continuing education units (CEU) or Professional Development Credits (PDCs) from a number of certifying organizations.

Competency training and continuing education/professional development are the things that fulfill Blue House Energy's mission to help build industry capacity. Gaps in training and knowledge in many areas of the home building and renovation industry have been identified for years. Some parts of the industry are up to speed on building science and house-as-a-system. The bulk of the players who make up the value chain, through no fault of their own, are not.

Value of Training

What’s the biggest source of callbacks?

Human error.

Why does your crew make mistakes? Did they understand both the why and the how of the job’s tasks?

If you’re a supplier, are you losing bids because your sales team can’t answer building science related questions from your clients?

You’ve got competent people on the job. More training is one way to reduce callbacks and increase sales.

But continuing education is costly, you say.

Not if you get it through Blue House Energy! We provide cheap and cheerful on-demand e-learning in building science and construction technology that suits your budget and your schedule. Check out our growing list of courses!
