Home Upgrade Core Training for Energy Upgrade California

October 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - October 11, 2018 @ 4:30 pm

This course provides essential training for contractors who wish to offer Energy Upgrade California® rebates to their clients who receive Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) gas or electric service. It is a required course if you do not already have a BPI Building Analyst on staff and it is strongly recommended even if you do.

In this three-day course, you will learn fundamentals of building science and gain practical
experience with core measures in the Energy Upgrade California program, including;
  • How to find air leaks in the building shell and properly seal them
  • How to insulate the attic plane
  • How to test forced air duct systems and building shells to program standards
  • Combustion appliance safety testing practices
  • Essential components of PG&E’s Energy Upgrade California program
  • How program measures fit with HERS, HERS II, BPI, and other certifications and utility programs
Course time is evenly split between the classroom and the demonstration lab.
Eligibility Requirements:
  • Have attended a PG&E-hosted Participitation Workshop. Build It Green will verify this.
Bring to training:
  • Writing instruments, highlighter.
  • Notepad
  • Calculator
  • Personal dust mask [recommended]
  • Closed-toed shoes [no sandals allowed in test-house]
  • A refillable water bottle or drink container, to limit disposable water bottle use.
  • Business cards in order to network with other attendees.
