I work with a site called Climate Crossroads (www.climatecrossroads.org) and I just found out about a home energy audit program from Maryland - they do trainings for contractors who want to become certified: http://www.mdhomeperformance.org/infoForContractors.html Hope that helps!

Does anyone know of a program that is within the US that trains you to be a home energy assessor. The program is widely used in the UK, but unable to find in the US. Thank you
