About the Training

The Solar Decathlon Professionals Training is designed to provide mid-career building industry professionals with an opportunity to further develop their building science expertise and gain practical experience designing zero energy projects. The training includes 10 live weekly sessions, on-demand building science education sessions, and a project activity. Weekly course topics include high-performance project planning and goal setting; passive design; zero energy building; building envelopes; HVAC systems; lighting; plug loads; life cycle analysis; retrofits; and renewable energy.

This advanced level course is intended for early to mid-level professionals, facility managers, and higher education faculty familiar with building science principles but want to learn more, apply zero energy design principles to their projects, and/or teach others. A key component of the training is applying the building science concepts to a project. Each week, participants will consider design decisions for a project and present ideas at the end of the course.

Participants are eligible to earn GBCI and AIA continuing education hours.
