Requirements to become a Trainer
At this time, there is no official commitment required on the part of those interested in joining the Trainer Community, and all of your training is self-initiated; it is made available to you, and it’s up to you to take advantage of it. There is no certification process to become an ENERGY STAR Trainer.
There are numerous webinar trainings opportunities available on a host of topics related to ENERGY STAR.
There are several pre-recorded trainings available as well. Here are some great places to start:
- Portfolio Manager 101
- Portfolio Manager 201
- How to Apply for the ENERGY STAR
- Financing Energy Efficient Upgrades with ENERGY STAR
- The Federal Guiding Principles Checklist in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager
