How to Become a Professional Energy Auditor
Deciding to become a home energy performance professional is a major move for anyone. One question that consistently comes from people looking to enter the home performance industry: “How do I become an Energy Auditing Professional?”
The answer depends on where an individual wants to perform energy audits. The first thing to know is that in the United States, incentives for homeowners getting energy audits and retrofits differ by state and county. Your state’s energy department website will list the official incentives.
Secondly, becoming an energy auditing professional sometimes requires a specific type of industry certification or energy audit training.
The general requirements to become a certified energy auditor include:
- Being at least 18 years old
- Having access to all necessary personal safety equipment required by OSHA
- Completing any energy auditing education required by clients or state
- Passing the certification examination(s)
