Competency training and continuing education/professional development are the things that fulfill Blue House Energy's mission to help build industry capacity. Gaps in training and knowledge have been identified for years. And while some parts of the industry are hep to building science and house-as-a-system, the bulk of the players who make up the value chain invested in the homebuilding industry are not.
Many other industries don't blink an eye at competency training, licensing and continuing education -- think about it: hairdressers are required to be licensed, but air sealers and insulators are not.
That's crazy making!
