Talk about your experience at Ecotech and its value to your life.
I value the experience that I have had at Ecotech. It has increased my earning potential with skills that are fundamental yet not always available in industry. In some ways my education that I have received has over prepared me for my current career but in doing so it will insure my advancement in my present career.
The most expensive energy is energy that's wasted, so it's no surprise that an energy efficiency industry has evolved and professionals trained in this field can help save Americans a substantial amount of money each year.
Ecotech Institute's Residential Energy Management degree program is designed to produce graduates for a career helping plan and execute practical energy efficiency strategies for homeowners, businesses and the industrial sector.
Simply put, trained energy efficiency professionals help others save money by using less energy. The advice and assistance they provide might, for instance, result in a factory saving money by eliminating wasted energy in their manufacturing process. In a residential setting, an energy efficiency consultant might recommend new windows and doors—calculating the energy-saving projections to justify the installation cost.
As part of the Residential Energy Management degree curriculum, students have the opportunity to earn the Building Performance Institute (BPI) Certification. BPI sets the national standards for energy efficiency retrofits and professional credentials. Many state-run energy efficiency and weatherization programs require BPI certifications.
"As more people seek ways to improve their energy efficiency, individuals with deep knowledge in renewable energy systems are becoming valuable,"
--Tiffany Burton, Program Director for Ecotech Institute's Residential Energy Management program.
Student John Wiseman reflects on why he chose Ecotech Institute and the Energy Efficiency program.
