“A workforce trained to competency-based standards that are market valued leads to safer, more cost-effective clean energy use, which boosts consumer confidence and supports the expansion of solar and other renewable energy installations across the country.”
Jane Weissman, IREC President and CEO

IREC is ensuring that our clean energy workforce is well trained to quality, competency-based standards – and trained by programs that teach the skills in demand by employers.


IREC leads the nation in the development of quality and competency standards, accreditation and certification programs for clean energy educators and training programs in renewable energy and energy efficiency. Together, they form a strong foundation for a quality workforce with market-valued skills.

As National Administrator of the Solar Instructor Training Network (SITN), we work with the most renowned solar training facilities in the U.S. to build solar workforce capacity in solar system design, installation, sales and inspection.
