Included some commercial energy info which was a little confusing
By (Building Inspector) on Feb, 18, 2021
Included some commercial energy info which was a little confusing. Thermostat settings in this course are different than IECC codes. Course specified thermostat setting for cooling at not less than 78 degrees, but code says 75 degrees on thermostat settings

More info was given on the basics of scope and admin rather than concentrating on the actual energy code provisions
By on Apr, 26, 2021
More info was given on the basics of scope and admin rather than concentrating on the actual energy code provisions. I don't feel that I learned as much as I could have and I wish I would have had more of a description of what the class actually entailed before paying for the class.
