New Organizations and Trainers Awarded Prestigious IREC Credential

Nine training organizations and two individual instructors in clean energy were recently awarded the prestigious IREC credential.

“It is exciting to see such a diverse group of organizations and educators demonstrating their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through pursuit of an IREC credential,” said Laure-Jeanne Davignon, director of IREC’s Credentialing Program. “We view this as a strong indicator of the health and maturity of the fast-growing clean energy industry.”

The IREC Credentialing Program for colleges, private training organizations and individual trainers is the respected mark of quality, market-valued training that provides important new safeguards for clean energy consumers, industry, students and government.

Focused on quality training that meets employer needs, the IREC Credential offers workers, employers and consumers the reassurance that training providers are teaching skills to industry-validated standards, to create a highly qualified clean energy workforce.

The Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) believes clean energy is critical to achieving a sustainable and economically strong future. To pave this clean energy path, IREC works to expand consumer access to clean energy; generates information and objective analysis grounded in best practices and standards; and leads programs to build a quality clean energy workforce, including a unique credentialing program for renewable energy and energy efficiency training providers and instructors. A not-for-profit organization since 1982, IREC’s programs and policies have benefitted energy consumers, policymakers, utilities and the clean energy industry. As of June 2013, IREC is an ANSI-accredited American National Standards Developer. Visit www.irecusa.org.
