REE Job Training Program

Job Training Program

Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) is seeking four participants for a grant-funded job training program to begin in January 2020. The 11-week program includes 10 weeks of training on home energy auditing and quality control inspection of in-home work. Upon completion of the training course, applicants will take three certification exams to become nationally certified as an Energy Auditor and a Quality Control Inspector (QCI) through the Building Performance Institute (BPI). This program pays all expenses associated with the training including mileage, lodging, and meals - lodging and meals paid if you live more than 50 miles from Frankfort. To ensure participants have income while they work toward certification, trainees will be paid a $15.00 per hour stipend during the 11-week program. Upon certification, applicants will be qualified to work as an employee of a WAP service provider organization or as a private contractor serving the Kentucky WAP network. In exchange for the free training and certification participants must make themselves available to work in the U.S. Department of Energy-funded Kentucky Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP) network for at least 2 years.

Applicants must meet the following requirements for acceptance into the program:

  • 1000 hours working in home construction/remodeling or a similar field or performing energy audits within the last 3 years
  • 2000 hours in building trades (framing, roofing, drywall, weatherization, energy audits, etc.) within the past 3 years.
  • If you hold other related certifications such as RESNET, BPI, EPA, etc., up to 1000 hours of the building trades experience can be waived.

If you are selected for participation you will be required to submit proof of work experience and agree to KHC's program terms and conditions before final admission to the program.

Participants are not guaranteed an offer of employment at the end of the program.
