The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and Penn State Extension, in partnership with the ERC, are holding joint energy efficiency trainings for individuals and businesses interested in becoming a NRCS certified Technical Service Provider to write Agricultural Energy Management Plans (AgEMP) for Pennsylvania agricultural producers for both Headquarters and Landscape.
The first day of the training is being held to provide in-depth, hands on training to potential TSP’s to learn about the required elements of an AgEMP for Headquarters. You will learn about where energy savings potential can be found on a dairy farm, work through data collection and plan writing exercises that are acceptable for AgEMP plan development and ultimately develop a sample plan which can be used for plan review and approval for the certification process to become a TSP. The Day 1 training agenda can be found here.
The second day of training is for both Headquarters and Landscape. This training will cover plan development criteria and review a sample plan for Headquarters and Landscape. We will provide an overview of NRCS programs so you can see and understand the full scope of business opportunities available in planning and design/implementation. We will provide a classroom setting for NRCS Conservation Planning and TSP Orientation which will exempt you from taking those required courses online. The entire afternoon will be hands-on creation of your TSP profile for the online registry. One-on-one personal assistance with this process will be provided. The Day 2 training agenda can be found here.
