In May 2019, SEDAC presented lessons learned from our Energy Code Training and Support Program at the 2019 National Energy Codes Conference.
Abstract: How do you build a successful Energy Code Training Program? SEDAC, in partnership with the Illinois EPA Office of Energy, has provided Illinois Energy Conservation Code training and support to hundreds of community code officials, design and construction professionals, and students in Illinois. Since 2018 SEDAC has delivered 17 workshops and webinars to over 800 participants, 4 online courses to over 200 students, and energy code technical support to over 220 individuals. SEDAC's goal is to increase awareness of the Code and improve code compliance of new construction and renovation. This poster discusses lessons learned from our program, with a focus on developing engaging content, providing multiple training options for busy professionals, and attracting participants, especially in hard-to-reach areas.
