Green Technician Certification Workshop
This three-day workshop is specifically focused on Green Technology Concepts for personnel who are responsible for maintenance and repairs in residential and commercial buildings.
Maintenance technicians employed by housing authorities can inspect residences and identify energy-wasting situations that can be corrected through cost-saving repairs and building up-grades. And, through implementation of their understanding of green buildings and proper use of test equipment to evaluate structures overall, and the building electrical and heating & air conditioning systems, they can assist in educating residents and helping them to cut their energy costs and maximize their savings on their utility bills.
Facilities maintenance personnel in schools, offices, hospitals, casinos, and other commercial buildings can implement off-peak energy use procedures, and perform inspections and repairs to minimize energy waste and evaluate HVAC systems to ensure they are operating safely and efficiently.
Attendees in this workshop will prepare for and accomplish a multiple-choice exam. Achieving a passing score earns a professional level technician certification in green technology.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
- Housing authority maintenance workers who maintain electrical, plumbing, and mechanical systems or accomplish building re-habs and upgrades of residences
- Maintenance technicians whose responsibilities include servicing and maintaining commercial facilities such as schools, hospitals and offices
- Facility maintenance supervisors and administrators who direct facility maintenance and want to implement energy-saving programs
