ENERGY STAR Trainer Community


Do you assist companies with evaluating their energy/water usage or provide them with recommendations for energy or water savings? Do you provide regular training on ENERGY STAR® or Portfolio Manager®? Here is an opportunity to join ENERGY STAR’s Trainer Community, a network of professionals around the country who deliver ENERGY STAR training sessions to the public. As a member of the community, you’ll get access to all of ENERGY STAR’s trainer resources, plus a monthly email with:

  • Advance notice of upcoming Portfolio Manager changes
  • Advance notice of new ENERGY STAR resources
  • Invitations to quarterly trainer meetings

Even if you don’t regularly give training sessions, you can still use the training resources—such as annotated slide decks and videos—to help you do your job better.
