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 performance industry.

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.
