Everblue Students Now Eligible for College Credit

Tue, 2013-10-29 09:34

Everblue is excited to announce that our students are now able to receive college credit thanks to a partnership with Madisonville Community College (MCC). This partnership allows students who complete an Everblue training course to receive academic credit toward an Associate of Applied Science degree in Energy Management offered at MCC.

The Energy partnership Management program is a 60 credit hour Associate of Applied Science degree that is regionally accredited through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The program was created to give non-traditional students an opportunity to receive a regionally accredited, distance learning degree that focuses on sustainable practices. The classes are offered 100% online, and students do not even have to buy a textbook for the core classes because MCC utilizes open source materials and uses an iPad in place of textbooks. The addition of Everblue’s courses will allow students to have greater flexibility in accessing classes for this degree program.

“In preparation for creating this program, I completed several of Everblue’s fast-paced, very high quality trainings,“ said Jake Hildebrant, Energy Management Program Coordinator at MCC. “I was very impressed with the expert trainings that I received with Everblue, and I was able to pass all of my certifications on the first attempt.”

Students can choose from a wide range of Everblue’s classes, which include Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) accreditation, Building Performance Institute (BPI) certification, Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) training, Certified Sustainability Manager (CSM) training, North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) certification, and Commercial Building Energy Auditor (CBEA) training.

Once a student completes MCC’s program, they can transfer to Western Kentucky University (WKU) to receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Technology Management, another program that is 100% online. Additionally, WKU offers a Master of Science degree in Engineering Technology Management that is also 100% online so there are numerous possibilities for how far a student can take their Everblue classes if they are trying to achieve a degree.

“I think that this partnership is a ‘win-win’ for both Everblue and Madisonville Community College,” said Hildebrant. MCC students will benefit from the added flexibility in course selection and Everblue students will now have the advantage of receiving college credit that is part of a regionally accredited and transferable degree.
