Students will learn about regulations and standards, desk monitoring, tools of the trade, building assessment, interpretation of infrared imagery, in-progress monitoring and what to include in a report. The course follows the Department for Energy's standardized curriculum for Quality Control Inspector and has been modified to align with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's (NREL) Job Task Analysis for Quality Control Inspector. The structure of the course includes lecture, discussion and practical experience through hands-on skill sets.
