Everblue Energy welcomes Ivy Tech Community College in Indianapolis, Ind., as its newest partner to provide renewable energy training programs across the state of Indiana. Multiple campuses across the state will offer courses in LEED, BPI Building Analyst, BPI Envelope-Shell and Solar Photovoltaics beginning this summer.

Ivy Tech is the nation’s largest singly-accredited statewide community college system with more than 150,000 students enrolled annually.

“By having one or more industry credentials in the green sector, a person is illustrating his or her confidence in the subject matter and the ability to succeed in employment related to the industry,” said Jon Boggiano, co-founder of Everblue. “LEED and BPI credentials truly determine your level of success in the field.”
