PV Training Can Fill Knowledge Gap for Code Officials and Other Professionals
From code officials to realtors, insurers to the fire service, there are a number of industries that impact the solar transaction, and the ‘soft’ (non-hardware) costs of going solar. IREC leads national and state efforts to streamline the permitting process to help address these costs, while simultaneously recognizing that it takes a well-trained workforce to support these initiatives.
DOE Awards IREC $2.2M for Solar Training of Allied Professionals
IREC has received funding under DOE's SunShot Solar Training and Education for Professionals (STEP) program to coordinate outreach and develop solar training resources designed to target 100,000 professionals in the building code, inspection and firefighting sectors. At the end of the two-year project, IREC aims to deliver direct training to 10,000 individuals.
