Community Energy Ambassadors Training

Training Overview

CEA bannerCommunity Energy Ambassadors are well-informed in energy efficiency and renewable energy topics due to their curiosity and their training.

CERTs provides an overview of clean energy to make you feel comfortable and confident. You don't have to be an expert in clean energy, you just need to be curious and open to learning more.

Whether you're determined to become a CERTified Community Energy Ambassador by completing the training and the project, or you just want to explore what we offer to become better informed on different aspects of clean energy, we welcome you!

Let's get started

We're creating a a training checklist that will take you through each section of the training and track your progress. When you complete the checklist you'll learn more about the scope of the project idea, and the different possibilities you can pursue. It will be up to you to submit an idea to us (we'll provide the form soon). We'll reach out to you to learn more about your idea and to support you as you move forward.

Once you complete your approved project, you'll be a CERTified Community Energy Ambassador! This means you'll be invited to present to different communities upon request as well as sport some really cool, official Ambassador swag!

But no pressure to commit. We're glad you're here and we're happy to share more about clean energy with you! You can always visit this page to review sessions and find more information on topics you want to dive into.
