The online course was developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) using materials from a two-day FEMP classroom course as well as interactions with and feedback from Federal energy/facility managers, industry experts, and equipment vendors.  [s1]The link should go to the main page of the training so that folks can create an account to log onto the training.  If they don’t log on, we can track who takes the course.
