Sponsored by: WORKFORCE CENTRAL FLORIDA (WCF) and Osceola Energy Initiative (OEI)
On March 30th, 2012, the first group of 12 Interns graduated from the Osceola Energy Initiative (OEI) Energy Efficiency and Retrofit Certification Program. During the four weeks of class training the participants received the OSHA 10-Hour Hazard Recognition, DOE Florida Weatherization Technician, and Green Advantage® Certification training.
Upon completion the participants were immediately placed with OEI Participating Contractors to receive on-the-job training until June 2012. During the on-the-job training, graduates receive hands-on training completing energy retrofits and upgrades, weatherization projects, HVAC upgrades and other practical energy efficiency experience at residences and businesses throughout the community.
