The Interstate Renewable Energy Council, Inc. (IREC)’s ISPQ credentialing program is searching for professionals to serve as IREC ISPQ Registered Auditors. All qualified candidates are invited to apply, but there is a special need for those with technical expertise in the energy efficiency and weatherization fields.
IREC is the North American Licensee for the Institute for Sustainable Power Quality (ISPQ) International Standard for the Accreditation and Certification of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Training Providers. As such, we assess content, quality, and resources across a broad range of energy efficiency/weatherization and renewable energy training programs.
Auditors play a key role in ensuring the quality and accuracy of the IREC ISPQ evaluation process. Through a practice of thorough review, they ensure that applicants for accreditation or certification meet all of the requirements of the ISPQ Standard. Auditors work with candidates through an ongoing exchange to assess their application, in certain cases traveling to applicant locations to perform on-site audits.
IREC ISPQ Registered Auditors must have experience in an energy-related discipline. Potential Auditors must have demonstrated organizational and evaluation skills. Auditing requires clear analysis and attention to detail.
A candidate from academia will normally have a formal education in engineering, science, engineering technology, building science, or an energy-related field.
Candidates from other than academia will normally have a formal education to the bachelor’s degree level or higher, and five (5) or more years experience in an energy efficiency or renewable energy-related discipline.
