Home Builders Institute ("HBI"), the workforce development arm of the National Association of Home Builders, entered an agreement with WDC Solar in the summer of 2011 to incorporate WDC Solar’s solar installation training curriculum into HBl's Pre-Apprenticeship Certificate Training ("PACT") program, certified by the United States Department of Labor.
