Santa Fe Community College (SFCC) has been the primary U.S. training site for WERS Verifier & Consultant classes. For Verifiers, the 3-day class is a mixture of classroom learning and field training, followed by a written exam and field exam. For Consultants, they have 1.5 days of classroom learning, followed by a written exam. The class pre-requisites are highly recommended for all students.

EnergySmart Academy Director Amanda Hatherly said, “Students really benefit from the hands-on, field-based sections of the training, where they can actively practice what they have been learning with immediate instructor feedback.”
