Weatherization Training and Optimization for Community Action Programs

An Applegate weatherization training session.

The Applegate Insulation trainer will spend hands-on time with each member of your crew on every facet of insulation installation, from preparation to installation.

Your agency is under tremendous pressure to meet current DOE guidelines for Weatherization assistance.  Our 30 years of experience are now your resource in our training class to help weatherization crews working with Community Action Agencies be the most productive they can be.  To help more members of your community live comfortably faster, our training optimiztion program evaluates and helps you with:

• Safety: Crew safety procedures and actual field safety rule execution.

• Materials: Examination of the materials your team is using, with recommendations to reduce cost or time by utilizing different processes or materials.
