WHAT: Cellulose Insulation Training
Learn how to install cellulose insulation to keep buildings warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. During this five day training, students will get hands-on experience applying “wet cellulose” directly to walls (pictured below demonstrating its fire resistant properties) as well as a dry application, between building surfaces.
Henry Red Cloud, proprietor of Lakota Solar Enterprises, will provide the instruction for this training. Students will also see his cardboard recycling facility (the source of the raw material for cellulose insulation) learn about the process of turning the cardboard into insulation (done out of state), and use the application machine.
