Weatherization & Energy Efficiency Training -- Prepare for RESNET's HESP Certification Exam

LAGUNA HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - September 30, 2009) - Allied Schools is offering a Weatherization and Energy Efficiency course that, upon successful completion, prepares students to sit for the RESNET Home Energy Survey Professional certification exam.

About $8 billion of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 has been invested into weatherization and energy efficiency programs. And trained workers are needed to help implement these nationwide programs. This means the DOE will partner with state and local governments to put approximately 87,000 Americans to work in the clean energy economy (DOE).

The clean energy economy outperformed total job growth in 38 states and the District of Columbia between 1998 and 2007 (2009 Pew Charitable Trust Report). With the assistance of a weatherization and energy efficiency professional, budget conscious individuals can reduce their heating bills by 32% and overall energy bills by about $350 per year (at current prices) by weather-proofing their home (DOE).

Trained weatherization and energy efficiency professionals provide home audits of all air ducts, electrical systems, heating and cooling systems and installation of energy efficient products and more. Allied's course prepares students to take on these challenges.

Allied's Weatherization and Energy Efficiency course and final exam are 100% online. This allows students to arrange unique study schedules around their personal obligations. Allied students also have access to live educational support, career assistance services and more.
