Click the link to read about how accredited training in the Guidelines for Home Energy Professionals project can guarantee better standardized training programs within the home energy upgrade industry.

The accredited training component of the Guidelines for Home Energy Professionals project guarantees the existence and availability of high quality standardized training programs within the home energy upgrade industry.

Just as the Home Energy Professional Certifications ensure qualified workers in the field, accredited training programs ensure that individuals receive the proper training to become certified Home Energy Professionals and to do the quality work that is defined in the standard work specifications. Many people may not know the difference between certification and accreditation. In the simplest terms, an individual gets certified and organizations, such as training providers, get accredited.
