TRAINING AVAILABLE

Many Dallas residents struggle to keep their homes adequately lit, heated, and cooled. Dallas community leaders are working toward helping alleviate this burden through home weatherization programs, which provide energy affordability for families who live in older, less energy-efficient houses. These programs are already increasing the demand for a highly-skilled green jobs workforce.

By providing free education and training through Green Job Skills, we want to create new job opportunities and mobility for our local workforce by establishing a clear set of competencies on which to base working credentials. 

Green Job Skills provides a central hub to a variety of free education and training opportunities. Check back with us often as new classes will be made available.

  • Building Science Principles – Automatic Access is Given to all Students.
    Building Science Principles is the best way to begin your journey if you are new to the field of weatherization and need a basic understanding of building science. This online course covers the concept of House as a System, heat transfer, air sealing, insulation, HVAC systems and more. There are several short quizzes to provide practice for those interested in taking the BPI Building Science Principles exam. Additional BPI certification exam fees are not included in Green Job Skills' tuition assistance program.
  • Retrofit Installer Technician
    This video-based class covers information helpful to installers, including air sealing, insulation, and basic pressure diagnostics. Retrofit Installer is the entry-level position for nearly any weatherization program in the US, and this would be the first training they would receive as part of that new hire.
  • Building Analyst
    This class covers everything needed for the work of the Building Analyst, except the hands-on practice, and includes pressure and combustion diagnostics to teach students health & safety. Relying more on discussions and assignments moves the student toward being qualified as a Crew Leader or utility-based Home Auditor. BPI Certification exams and hands-on portion fees are not included in Green Job Skills' tuition assistance program.
  • Energy Auditor
    This course covers everything needed for the work of the Energy Auditor, including blower door testing, pressure pan, zonal pressure diagnostics, and combustion testing. Completing the course provides students with a digital badge from SFCC and 36 CEUs from BPI. To challenge the BPI Energy Auditor exam, candidates must also have field experience and apply to BPI for approval. The cost of the exams is not included in the course.
