BPI Certification Training
Is BPI Certification Right for You?
Energy auditors assess a home’s energy efficiency and make recommendations on how to improve it. Acquiring knowledge and skills in this area will make you more competitive in an industry that is set to boom.
Ecotech Training offers energy auditing courses that will train and prepare you for the Building Performance Institute’s (BPI) nationally recognized BPI Certification exams.
These courses are great for anyone with experience in construction, home inspection or working with HVAC equipment. These courses are also a good complement to solar training, because once the home is efficient, the case for having a solar installation increases dramatically.
How to Become a Professional Energy Auditor
Deciding to become a home energy performance professional is a major move for anyone. One question that consistently comes from people looking to enter the home performance industry: “How do I become an Energy Auditing Professional?”
The answer is that it mostly depends on where an individual wants to perform energy audits. The first thing to know is that in the United States, incentives for homeowners getting energy audits and retrofits differ by state and county. Your state’s energy department website will list the official incentives.
Secondly, becoming an energy auditing professional sometimes requires a specific type of industry certification or energy audit training.
The general requirements to become a certified energy auditor include:
● Be at least 18 years old
● Have access to all necessary personal safety equipment required by OSHA
● Complete any energy auditing education required by clients or state
● Pass the certification examination(s)
