The American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), the largest and most respected professional association for home inspectors in North America, has named Green Training USA as their Quality Control Assessor for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Home Energy Score Program.
Under the Program, qualified members of ASHI assess the energy efficiency of individually owned houses and determine a corresponding energy score. The DOE requires independent third party reviews of 5% of all homes scored. Green Training USA will provide the independent quality control reviews for a 3-year term.
“Green Training USA has been an effective training provider for ASHI members, and we’re looking forward to expanding our relationship to include quality control,” said Marvin Goldstein, President of ASHI.
“We’re pleased to provide quality control services for ASHI, and to expand our services beyond training to provide employment opportunities for our graduates,” said Dallas Jones, President of Green Training USA.
