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
The Commissioner of Higher Education handed a directive to the Montana University System to move all campus-based education courses online beginning March 23rd, including all Extension campuses. These efforts are based in upholding health and safety of both students and instructors/staff, and minimizing spread of the disease.
Courses currently impacted:
Crew Leader (March 24-26) has been rescheduled for September 17-19, 2020.
Retrofit Installer Technician: Building Shell (March 30-April 2) has been rescheduled for September 14-19.
Energy Auditor and Written Exam (April 6-9) and Energy Auditor Field Exams (April 13-15) have been rescheduled for October 5-8 and October 13-15, respectively.
Retrofit Installer Technician: Mechanical Systems (May 4-8) has been rescheduled for October 26-30.
Advanced Combustion Testing (May 11-13) has been rescheduled for July 14-16.
EPA Risk Assessor Refresher (May 28) has been postponed. We will reschedule these later in the year, but a date has not yet been decided.
OSHA 10 (June 1-2) has been rescheduled for July 21-22.
Regarding future courses, we are awaiting further instruction from the University and the State regarding policies and recommendations for June 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.
Do not hesitate to firstname.lastname@example.org call 406-586-0070 with any questions or concerns.
