Governments and consumers are increasingly demanding that businesses engage in responsible environmental practices. The demand for skilled workers that have knowledge and experience with energy and environmental best practices continues to rise. It’s on the TV, in the news, and on the radio, but what exactly does it take to “go green” mean and what does it mean to a company’s bottom line?

The first half of this course aims to answer that question. Employers, consumers, and the general public want to reduce energy costs while keeping expenses down. This course builds the practical foundation to realize this goal. The terminology, technology, and methods that span this movement are all covered in this course, making it essential for all traditional tradespeople, as well as businesspeople, salespeople, and enthusiasts.
