Welcome to the New York State Weatherization Directors Association (NYSWDA).
Since its inception in 1985, NYSWDA has made it a priority to be the 'go-to'
resource for information, technical training, and best practices in the home
NYSWDA is the leading provider of building sciences training in New York State.
Our facilities, in Syracuse, Buffalo, and Troy, NY, are designed to integrate
classroom training and laboratory exercises providing field technicians an
exceptional learning experience. Our trainers are subject matter experts with
years of field and classroom experience.
NYSWDA is a Building Performance Institute (BPI) affiliate and an approved BPI
Testing Center. We offer training and written/field tests onsite. NYSWDA has
been working with BPI for over 20 years and all of our courses are eligible for
continuing education units (CEU’s).
NYSWDA also assists both WAP agencies and home performance contractors in
obtaining bulk purchase pricing benefits. This means better than contractor rate
pricing on the one hundred+ products that we procure.
And finally, NYSWDA works closely with policy regulators and implementing
agencies, advocating common sense energy policy and approaches to the home
performance industry around the state.
