Evaluator Refresher Course Updated

December 4, 2019

The online refresher for MEA approved evaluators has been updated on EnergyU. After completing the initial Train the Evaluator Workshop, evaluators are required to take a refresher course every three years. Evaluators may choose to attend another in-person workshop, or take the online refresher.

Individuals who had the been previously assigned the online refresher course are now assigned the new updated test. For new evaluators, administrators can simply enroll them in certificate MEA11995 to assign the new course. The new course consists of 20 scenario-based questions and requires a minimum score of 80% to pass.

MEA Evaluator Online Refresher Training

October 31, 2019

In order to maintain an approved status, every three years evaluators are required to either attend an in-person workshop or take the online refresher course. Currently, some evaluators are experiencing difficulty getting their progress in the online refresher course to properly award the certificate of completion. We have temporarily deactivated the course and hope to have a replacement course uploaded within the next few weeks. If needed, the required renewal date will be extended until the new refresher course is available. We will post an announcement as soon as the new course becomes available. Thank you for your patience!
