How it Works

Blue House Energy courses offer in-depth learning without requiring you to re-arrange your schedule, travel to a classroom, or learn at the pace a teacher chooses to set. Our online courses are rich with graphics, animations, and photographs of real, site-based examples. A clear voice narrates every detail and a printable version of the voice-over is included.

Course Structure

Each Blue House Energy course is made up of 1-14 modules. Within each module, several topics are covered. Each topic takes 10-15 minutes to complete. At the end of each module there is a quiz to help you figure out what you need to review before going on. 

Final Test & Certificate of Achievement

You must pass each module quiz with a grade of at least 70% before going on to the next one. There is no limit to the number of times you take the module quizzes. When you have successfully completed the last module quiz, you will be directed to the final assessment. You may take the final assessment only once.

The final assessment for each course consists of 50-100 multiple choice, yes/no, or true/false questions.

You can review any or all of the topics and/or modules before taking the final assessment for a course.

A grade of 70% or better will earn you a Blue House Energy Certificate of Achievement.

All courses are available for registration through Blue House Energy.

Time Commitment

Each module in a course is about 1 hour long, based on a voice-over narrating the slide. You can review the separate topics in a module, at your own pace, after the first run through. There are between one and fourteen modules in each course.

The estimated time to complete each course varies between 9-20 hours depending on the number of modules. This includes initial and subsequent module reviews, module quizzes, final assessment and review of the downloadable resources.

You are expected to finish a course and write the final test within eight weeks. However, you may access the modules for one year from the date of registration.
