This certificate of achievement is for students interested in a career in the building energy consulting industry. Energy consultant selects the energy systems, documents, and verifies energy code is being met. Energy consultants work in a team environment, coordinating directly with architects, engineers, subcontractors, and the building owner to oversee, and examine multiple pathways to achieve the energy goals set by the owner and city ordinances. The student will model the building with alternative wall systems, roofs, window, and energy systems to meet the owner’s energy goals. The student will receive comprehensive training in energy analysis software programs that may be used to document compliance with CA Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6), ASHRAE 90.1 Standards, HERS energy rating systems as well as residential and nonresidential Green Building rating systems, such as GreenPoint Rated and LEED.
