Zero Net Energy Technology Certificate of Achievement

The Zero Net Energy (ZNE) Technology Certificate provides the general knowledge of many variations of renewable energies. The technician can serve as a liaison between building stakeholders and a specialized technician or can continue to pursue a specialized credential. Zero Net Energy Technicians (ZNET) and building stakeholders work in a team environment, coordinating maintenance schedules, mechanical and electrical breakdowns. Together they verify that the building systems are working within the design conditions. This introductory certificate focuses on key factors involving design of Zero Net Energy (ZNE) buildings and maintenance. Students will learn the fundamentals of the ZNE building design through each step of design and construction process - from predesign to occupancy and operations. Operation and proper maintenance of the energy systems including HVAC, solar, lighting and envelope are analyzed in depth.
