Several times it was said that this training is very similar to home inspection training and that there is a lot of crossover.... Several times it was said that this training is very similar to home inspection training and that there is a lot of crossover. I am a licensed home inspector and I can tell you that you should no longer make this analogy. It took me months to get that license through educational training and apprenticeship. You are doing your students a disservice by trying to cram so much into a week. There should be an online course to get the basics out of the way basic construction and concepts so you can concentrate more on the energy specific aspects. I thought the course was too expensive to begin with, 2000. And after taking it I am certain that the cost does not equal the knowledge . My inspection license cost 2500 and time under a mentor professional inspector. At this point, I don't feel as confident with the physical tools or in the training immediately after this course as much as I did after I attained my home inspection license. Also, it is probably best to not have your instructors talk down about HVAC contractors I know two other people with the same certifications that do this also. It takes a minimum 3 years to get that license and the ones I know are very professional and know their business.

I was nervous about the amount of information I had to learn in such a small amount of time but Todd did such a great job at keeping a relaxed classroom and taught the material at a great pace. I plan on taking more classes in the future and will most certainly be attending Everblue.

The workbook provided contained blurry black and white photos that had small, unreadable text. Pictures that required color contrast like thermal camera images looked like one big grey blur. Parts of the curriculum contradicted itself and the field test worksheet was unclear per the new standards. Half our class had a different field test guide and it caused confusion as to what was the correct test method. At least the instructor was able to find the correct information, but it took time and caused lots of stress amongst the candidates.
