Green Jobs — Act fast before they’re snatched from the vine

The Tennessee Department of Human Services and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) is providing training for the state’s Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP). TVA will provide energy auditor and weatherization contractor training across the state that meets U. S. Department of Energy standards.

If you are interested in working as an energy auditor or as a weatherization contractor, contact your local WAP agency for information and training registration. In addition to contacting local action agencies for information, a temporary toll-free training registration number has been established and can be reached at 1-877-830-3304.

While weatherization contractors are required to have a license and insurance, each WAP agency establishes its own minimum qualification for weatherization contractors and energy auditors.
