Thomas Edison State College Assigns College Credit to NIA's IEAP Certification Program
The National Insulation Association (NIA) is excited to announce that individuals who complete the Insulation Energy Appraisal Program (IEAP) are now eligible to receive college credit from Thomas Edison State College; this credit may also be transferable to other colleges. Thomas Edison State College has a long history as a national leader in the assessment and evaluation of professional education and training programs.
NIA's IEAP Certification course teaches its attendees how to conduct an energy appraisal for mechanical insulation and energy efficiency. Certified Insulation Energy Appraisers attend a 2-day training program where they learn how to examine a facility's systems and insulation and provide a verifiable mathematical analysis of how much money could be saved by replacing damaged or missing insulation.
The credentialing review was funded by an energy-related training grant awarded to the New Jersey State Energy Sector Partnership (SESP) Council and overseen by the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development and the New Jersey Pathways Leading Apprentices to a College Education (PLACE). The SESP Council provided the funding for IEAP credentialing as part of its focus on energy efficiency and renewable energy industry training.
The team of reviewers commended NIA's commitment to quality learning as well as the strength and presentation of our curriculum. They also applauded our dedication to best practices and our commitment to strict oversight standards.
