Manufactured Housing Fundamentals
Instructor-led course (210)
Manufactured Housing Fundamentals is a four-day class that incorporates classroom lectures, videos and interactive demonstrations with activities at our on-site mobile home and state-of-the-art training facility. The class curriculum is suitable for weatherization crews and those seeking a better understanding of manufactured home weatherization. The class uses principles of building science to explain why weatherization techniques are effective. The class devotes a significant amount of time for hands-on practice of these weatherization techniques.
