Occupational Endorsement
Building Energy Retrofit Technician

Focusing on energy efficiency improvements to buildings this O.E. introduces the necessary skills for weatherization job readiness. Classroom and hands-on instruction will prepare workers to perform air-sealing work, install insulation, and repair or replace doors and windows. Individuals will be introduced to diagnostic procedures to evaluate air leakage through the building enclosure and ductwork, and evaluate each building for health and safety issues from carbon monoxide and home ventilation levels. Workers understand and apply the “house as a system” approach as a critical component of any building’s efficiency, comfort, and durability. The curriculum of this O.E. satisfies the related instruction requirement for the BERT apprenticeship.

Occupational endorsements are programs of study designed to give students intensive training in a specific occupational field.

Typically an occupational endorsement is less than 30 credits, and is not an eligible program for financial aid.
