Time to Tame the Building Science Education Wild West Show

Currently there is no framework for establishing core competencies across broad building science skills for all workforce classifications involved in both residential and commercial buildings. As a result, building science is not effectively integrated in professional education. Some might call it a ‘Wild West Show.’ That’s where DOE’s Guidelines for Building Science Education (GBSE) come in. Based on input from several expert meetings, guidelines have been developed for more than thirty different workforce classifications. Each of these guidelines provides a specific competency profile across a consistent set of building science skills. Now we need industry to embrace these guidelines and use them as a consistent framework for preparing text books, curriculum, class notes, testing, licensing, and certification requirements. This presentation will provide a brief overview of the GBSE’s, how to initiate a collective impact process to embrace this new framework, how DOE plans to build an invaluable buildings community resource for building science education tied to these guidelines, and how they fit in the broader DOE Building Science Education initiative.
