WSU TE Energy and Comfort Training – Skillsoft

June 30, 2021

In the fall of 2020, the Integrated Design + Construction Laboratory issued a survey to the entire WSU community about comfort, energy use, and learning styles. We discovered that many participants did not understand how or when to make energy-conscious decisions to improve their comfort. Over 65% of participants indicated that an online training would help them maintain comfort and reduce energy use! Based on your feedback, our lab has developed an Energy and Comfort Training module for all WSU faculty and staff, which is now hosted on the HRS learning platform, Skillsoft. We encourage you all to take this training, which should take you about 45 minutes. Some of the examples in the training are Pullman campus-specific, however, the information provided is universally important. Please take the training at your earliest convenience.
