Quick Answers to Your Weatherization Badge Questions

Who are these badges intended for?

The Weatherization Installer Badges are perfect for those participating in their state’s Weatherization Assistance Program in a crew leader or retrofit installer capacity. We recommend that states use their Training & Technical Assistance (T&TA) funds to purchase this training.

Why should I watch these videos instead of participating in a different educational program?

It is difficult and expensive to send a crew member to multi-day training events due to the cost of training, travel, and lost production. With this badges program, the training is broken down into task-specific videos, so you can complete only the module you need for that day’s work without the burden of completing a whole program prior to a job.

In addition, you can access the training from your smartphone - whether that’s at home, on the job, or in the car traveling between jobs.

These badges provide an excellent opportunity to receive high-quality instruction from an experienced IREC Accredited training provider without the hassle of taking off from work.

Will I earn the HEP Crew Leader Certification after completing this program?

The Everblue Crew Leader badges are fully aligned with the Crew Leader job task analysis. However, completing our badges program does not award a BPI Certification. Rather, it signifies that someone has learned and performed 100% of the tasks listed in the Crew Leader JTA.

DOE no longer recognizes BPI's Crew Leader certification now that Crew Leader badges are available. Everblue has created the only online badges training + digital tracking system that is fully aligned with DOE's badges specifications and the legacy Crew Leader Job Task Analysis.
