About the Training Center

Our experienced team of BPI, RESNET, and EarthCraft-certified trainers provides online and instructor-led courses at CHP’s state-of-the-art, 12,600-square-foot facility. Technicians are taught practices and techniques that test and reduce energy consumption, address health and safety concerns, and determine how the building shell, appliances, and occupants interact with one another.
