HYDE PARK – On March 8 and 15 at the Green Mountain Technology and Career Center, the Sustainable Energy Network will deliver its course Basics of High Performance by Jim Bradley, one of Vermont’s leaders on high-performance building. This is a foundation course in the science of how a building performs. For years, builders have followed best practices in new construction and innovation but were rarely exposed to the science of how a building performs. Building science is now considered essential learning in workforce development in the residential building industry.

Basics of High Performance Building is recognized by Efficiency Vermont as an important source of learning in the development of our workforce.

This course is part of SEON’s certification program and the only one in the state as a Level I High Performance Builder. Register early because of limited space.
