“As more people seek ways to improve their energy efficiency, individuals with deep knowledge in renewable energy systems are becoming a valuable asset in businesses,” said Tiffany Burton, program director for Ecotech’s Energy Efficiency program. “Ecotech has asked employers what skills they desire in employees and we often hear that people with BPI certification is key; that’s why our curriculum now includes that critical designation.”
Starting in 2014, Ecotech Institute’s Energy Efficiency students will also be able to use a new on-site energy efficiency lab that will help prepare students for BPI certification.
“Our new lab will once again set Ecotech apart from other institutions that don’t specialize in renewable energy and energy efficiency education,” said Burton. “Having this equipment on campus will be a terrific asset for our students.”
Ecotech Institute also offers associate degree programs in Solar Energy Technology and Wind Energy Technology, among others.
