The Montana Weatherization Training Center is located in beautiful Bozeman, Montana. We've provided training and technical assistance to the housing industry since 1991.
We deliver courses to field technicians, business owners, and program managers on topics that include energy efficiency, renewable energy, and health and safety. The Center includes fully-equipped classrooms, training labs, and field-testing facilities that allow us to deliver courses across a range of knowledge domains. We focus on hands-on training whenever possible, following a clear mission to support and improve the day-to-day performance of installers and technicians in the field.
The Training Center is an approved Test Center for the Building Performance Institute (BPI). We provide online examinations for all BPI certifications, and can proctor field examinations for the Energy Auditor, Quality Control Inspector, Building Analyst, Heating Professional, and Envelope Professional certifications.
CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) INFORMATION
Beginning June 1st, MSU is beginning Phase 2 of re-opening the campus, with a cautious eye on the Coronavirus numbers updates in Montana and Gallatin County. MSU will continue to adhere to guidance from the Governor and CDC recommendations. The Montana Weatherization Training Center is actively working towards opening our doors to safely provide in-person classes.
How we'll manage these classes. We are putting plans in place to keep ourselves and students safe in the classroom and lab spaces. We'll be engaging in social distancing, offering masks and gloves for students, and cleaning and sanitizing tools and work spaces often. Our staff will be masked throughout these events, and will engage in every protective measure available to assure that these events are as safe as possible.
July Postponed Classes
Advanced Pressure Diagnostics (July 7-9)
Advanced Combustion Testing (July 14-16)
OSHA 10-Hour Workplace Safety Training (July 21-22)
*NOTE: Beginning in July, we will be offering webinars every other Friday. This will allow our staff additional time to implement technologies to better serve you!
We will continue to offer webinars on important and timely topics - so don't miss out! You can receive BPI credits for attending by taking the associated quizzes and passing with a 70% or higher! Join us every other Friday at 9 a.m. MT and view our recorded webinars at http://weatherization.org/WxLive.html.
Regarding future courses, we are awaiting further instruction from the University and the State regarding policies and recommendations for July and beyond, as the situation is continuously developing.
We know that weatherization crews may be limited in how much work they can do under the current conditions. We'll continue to develop technical lessons for online delivery--with the hope that we can provide good educational opportunities that you can use to fill this lull in production.
