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
As of May 2021, the Montana Governor and the local Health Department have removed the state-wide mask mandate. MSU will continue to adhere to guidance from the CDC, the Governor, and the local health authorities. The Montana Weatherization Training Center is actively working towards providing safe 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 has
been fully vaccinated, and while we no longer require masks, we will engage in every
protective measure available to assure that these events are as safe as possible.
