Why Train with ECA?
There are few green jobs training facilities in the United States that can compare to ours.
The Energy Coordinating Agency’s Knight Green Jobs Training Center is a destination for individuals and professionals in the Energy Efficiency Industry to train and continue their careers. We offer high quality trainings and both written and field exam testing in our state of the art LEED Certified Gold for Commercial Interiors Green Jobs Training Center.
We ARE what we preach. We occupy a completely converted civil war era warehouse which usedto manufacture Civil War Union Army uniforms into the award winning and fully accredited training facility that houses all our operations, proving that reusing our building stock in the city and the nation as a whole can and does make business sense.
