In August and October 2011, two TREAT trainings for multifamily housing have been scheduled at the South Seattle Community College. Both trainings filled very quickly. The BPC is working to schedule future classes to accommodate waiting students. These trainings have an initial 1-day basics refresher followed by 2 days of training focused on TREAT audits for small multifamily housing.
Over July 11-14, the BPC’s lead trainer, Chris Clay, participated in the first of four DOE sponsored train-the-trainer workshops scheduled for the summer of 2011. Intended specifically for Weatherization Training Centers such as the BPC, participants will sharpen their skills in conducting trainings, identifying resources, and networking with other training centers. The BPC made its own contribution during the training Chris attended by providing a tour of our Bellingham training facility via our long-distance video network.
