PERC Offers Free Training Courses

The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) is providing architects, re-modelers and other construction professionals with free and easy to take education courses. And even better – these courses are American Institute of Architects (AIA), National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) approved! Courses focus on propane, its applications, installation specifics and products.

PERC’s continuing-education courses cover a broad range of subjects including energy efficiency, heating systems, outdoor living, power generation, propane systems, water heating systems and available incentives.

The following are the two newest course offerings which are available online (and for FREE!):

  • Residential Energy Performance Upgrades: An Energy, Economic, and Environmental analysis
    Decisions on where and when to invest in residential energy efficient equipment can be tricky for a consumer, especially when it comes to paying a premium for higher efficiency equipment. This course focuses on the typical energy use for average single family detached households. Once you have completed this course you will be able to explain the difference between elective and non-elective energy efficiency measures (EEM) and identify the most beneficial EEMs in each of the five targeted climate zones covered. You will also be able to determine approximate payback periods for EEMs in your projects and to convey the costs and benefits of the EEM options to your clients.
  • Living Off-Grid: Power Generation and Storage Basics
    Living off the grid—independent of power utilities—has become increasingly popular over the past decade. Getting rid of power poles and natural gas lines has become an attractive notion to many homeowners whether they have a second home designed to be a summer or winter retreat, want a permanent outpost far from the madding crowds, or simply desire to become energy independent. While the basic challenges of living off-grid haven’t changed, solutions to these challenges have made the idea of getting away from it all much easier.
