U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Launches Accredited Training Series To Support Performance Contracting
July 5, 2023 - The U.S. Department of Energy’s Performance Contracting National Resource Center (PCNRC) has launched a no-cost, accredited, on-demand interactive training series to support performance contracting and workforce development in the federal and MUSH (municipal and state governments, universities and colleges, K-12 schools, and hospitals) markets. The Training Certificate Series provides a strong foundational curriculum that is valuable for prospective owner’s representatives and customers alike, and the certificate process will help public officials identify well-qualified owner’s representatives who are committed to industry best practices.
The series offers eight stand-alone modules to provide training on the ESPC process, best practices, and the roles and responsibilities of involved parties, particularly those of the owner’s representative. Individuals have the opportunity to earn continuing education units and demonstrate their proficiency in performance contracting by completing the entire series and earning a certificate.
