Interstate Renewable Energy Council, Inc. IREC Standard 14732: 2012
General Requirements for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Certificate Programs
The Interstate Renewable Energy Council, Inc. invites public comment on the content of a new Standard for assessment of credit or non-credit energy-related certificate programs.
IREC Standard 14732: 2012, Requirements for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Certificate Programs, describes curriculum, administrative, personnel, facilities, and equipment requirements for certificate programs training the energy efficiency/weatherization and renewable energy workforce. Assessment to this new Standard will provide third-party verification to students, funders, policymakers and others that certificate programs meet and document educational processes, specific energy content and requirements for design, delivery and assessment resulting in issuance of a market-valued certificate.
IREC is working in partnership with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for joint accreditation to this new Standard. Candidates who are successful in meeting the requirements will be awarded ANSI-IREC accreditation.
The public comment period for the Standard will be closed on December 7, with an expected release date for a final document in early January 2012.
We look forward to your comments. Thank you for taking the time to weigh in.
