Why Get BPI Certified?

Simply put, BPI Certification makes you a more attractive candidate for employment. Moreover, BPI certified auditors can point to their certification as an assurance of quality for customers. There are many low-cost, low-benefit options available for home owners. These certifications will allow you to justify a higher-cost, high-benefit service.

When and Where Do the Exams Take Place?

The 100-question written exams are administered after a morning review on the second day of training. Each field exam is a 2-hour one-on-one exam proctored by a BPI Testing Center taken in a 2 hour slot in the days following training in a field house nearby your training location. Remember, this course includes two certification exams.

Great Experience. I do not hesitate in saying that Ecotech Training Education changed my life. I was unemployed and unhappy last year, and after Ecotech Training Education helped me find a great funding opportunity, I enrolled in their Newark, NJ Building Analyst / Envelope & Shell Professional Combination course. A year later, I am employed and my employer just paid for me to enroll in Ecotech Training Education’s Solar PV Bootcamp course. I can not recommend this company’s training more.
