Enercept University 2023: Take Your Building Skills to the Next Level!

Posted by Roberta Bartel on January 31, 2023

Who's ready for spring?  Many of us are ready to get back out to doing what we love, building homes and making money.  Let Enercept kick start your 2023 building season with some fun in-person training at Enercept in Watertown, SD. 

Held in our corporate offices and manufacturing facility in Watertown, South Dakota, Enercept University is a two-day workshop focusing on all things SIPs, from seeing how the foam is made to assembling panels for a small cabin.

EnerceptUniversitySince its inception in 2007, we have had over 200 individuals participate in Enercept University.

Greg Soelter of GBS Builders in Kansas has attended the program twice and found it valuable. He gained insights and learned installation tricks, plus enjoyed the interaction between the builders and learning things they’d discovered while installing panels.

“I think if you’re going to be putting SIPs panels up, it’d be very beneficial to attend the class to understanding of how they go together,” Soelter says.

Instructor Jon Golz points out that having a factory-trained installer at your location increases the credibility of your business. It also serves to connect the dots as far as the process goes, and that’s valuable as well.  

“Get the what, why and how of Enercept SIPs with classroom and in-person training,” Golz says. “Tours of our drafting, production and sales facilities will help all in attendance understand the entire purchasing process more fully.”

Participants are able to network and build relationships with members of the Enercept Team as well as with other in the SIP-building industry.

Class participants will witness the construction of a small SIP cabin under the direction of Enercept Pros Joe Pasma P.E. and Jon Golz. Enercept University SIP construction

The fee for the course is $250. Upon completion you will receive documentation that you have completed Enercept University.

Also included  with the course curriculum (compiled and presented by veterans in the SIPs industry) are a two-night motel stay with continental breakfast; three meals plus snacks, an Enercept University t-shirt and group photo.

Class size is limited, and registration is on a first come, first served basis.  The 2023 in-person session was held March 21 & 22.

Enercept U will be offered again in March 2024.
