This is a 40-hour training program is delivered over the course of 5 days (3 days in classroom, 2 days on-site). Both the written and field exams for BPI certification are administered as part of the workshop.

Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites to attend the training sessions or sit for the exams.

Skills Required: High school math and reading skills are necessary to comprehend the scope of the presentation material, but no prior construction experience is required.

What is BPI? The Building Performance Institute (BPI) was founded in 1993 and is the most widely recognized association that certifies energy auditors on a national scale. Focusing on the house as a system approach, BPI emphasizes the interdependence of building systems as they relate to energy consumption. Endorsed by the DOE, certification is required for participation in many state and national contractor incentive programs.
