Training Center


FullSizeRender-53     Sustainable Technology Institute offers workforce training in the fields of solar energy and building energy efficiency. We offer courses that prepare students for exams administered by the North American Board of Energy Practitioners (NABCEP) and Building Performance Institute (BPI). We are Virginia’s only energy training center that offers training and testing through both of these organizations. Our training center is located right on West Main Street in the historic fan of Richmond, Virginia. 

     Have you been wanting to prove your competency in the solar industry? Well if you are on a path of NABCEP certification, we offer classes that can fill some of the necessary hours required to sit for the exam. And this includes the required OSHA safety training! We are Virginia’s one stop shop for solar, energy auditing, and now workplace safety training!

     And if energy auditing is your goal, you came to the right place. We can train you to sit for the BPI Building Analyst exam. And we can also proctor you for your field test. 

     STI keeps classroom sizes small so we can cater to your individual needs and interests. Our facility’s training lab allows students to put their hands on the very equipment that professionals are installing in the field. This hands-on learning approach makes for an enjoyable workshop. 

     Call today to get an update of upcoming classes. We offer discounts for corporate training sessions of 4 or more students. The energy-efficiency movement is here and our training center is ready to get you on the right track!
