Our Training

Candidates will learn the “house-as-a-system” approach to home and building energy efficiency assessments. They will learn how the various components of a house—insulation, HVAC systems, the building envelope, appliances and lighting—impact overall comfort, health, safety and energy efficiency.  Our on-site lab gives students the opportunity to use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to assess these important variables in a mock-home setting.

Priority Energy’s proven building science curriculum, combined with the designation standards, will prepare students to pass the written, field and computer simulation exams. Students receive hands-on training in our lab and have the option to schedule practice time on their own. This is an excellent opportunity to enhance skills and build confidence for the field exam.

Your success is our priority!
Everything you need to succeed is included in our training packages.

  • I just wanted to send this message to all you and say GREAT JOB!  We had a rough inspection today and passed for the Woodward Ave. house. The inspector told us "if every house I inspected looked like this one I would be out a job".

  • We were so impressed with the amount of information the Priority Energy technicians gave us during our ENERGY AUDIT.  If you are buying a house, I would strongly recommend having them do an energy audit on it, in addition to your usual home inspection.
