by Brian Mattiske

Eight training organizations and four individual instructors in the clean energy industry have recently been awarded the prestigious IREC credential. Also, IREC Emeritus status has been granted to two long-time contributors in the clean energy fields.

“IREC applauds these new credential holders for their commitment to high quality training and continuous improvement,” said Laure-Jeanne Davignon, director of IREC’s Credentialing Program. “They have dedicated time and resources to demonstrate they meet the highest standards in our industry.”

The IREC Credentialing Program for colleges, nonprofits, private training organizations and individual trainers is the respected mark of quality, market-valued training that provides important safeguards for clean energy consumers, industry, students and government. It provides assurance that training providers are teaching skills to industry-validated standards to create a highly qualified clean energy workforce.

The organizations below have successfully completed a rigorous assessment process for their curriculum, administration, facilities, tools and hardware, personnel and safety practices. Instructors are evaluated on the basis of their teaching and technical experience, as well as teaching practice and commitments to quality, safety and continuous improvement.
