This course is intended for individuals who want to become energy managers for commercial and non-residential buildings. Students will learn various components of building science, building codes, greenhouse gas calculations, life cycle costing, and calculating the performance of building water, lighting, and heating usage to provide improved performance determinations. Whereas other programs related to commercial building energy auditing require extensive experience in the field, Everblue’s course is accessible to an array of individuals with or without experience in the industry. At the end of the program, students should have a strong grasp on commercial building energy auditing to affect change on a system and building-wide scale.
Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites for this training. Unlike other programs that require you to be a professional engineer with at least 10 years of experience, Everblue's Commercial Building Energy Auditor training will equip you with the foundation and knowledge necessary to become a commercial energy auditor now.
