Event Description

Everblue would like to help you become a home performance expert. We train and certify residential energy efficiency professionals using specialized testing equipment including blower doors, duct blasters, carbon monoxide and combustion gas testers. Our energy auditor training offers professional certification from the nation’s leading home performance standard – the Building Performance Institute (BPI).

Our BPI Weatherization Certification provides the skills and techniques necessary to properly air seal and insulate a home. We will teach you the right way to caulk, flash, or insulate a home.

This training includes 3 days of hands-on weatherization training. You will learn the proper ways of installation residential airsealing measures, including dense-pack insulation, spray-foam, caulk, mastic, foam board, bubble blanket, fire-rated sealants, and barriers, as well as techniques for sealing and insulating ducts, canned lights, attic hatches, crawlspaces, plumbing penetrations, top-plates and a variety of gaps, cracks, and openings found in a home.

Weatherizing residential and commercial buildings is one of the best ways for building owners to save large amounts of money on energy costs quickly. Few people actually know how to weatherize. Now is the time to get this knowledge and get yourself into a new industry that is sure to grow as more people find out about the financial benefits of weatherization!

Possible jobs that can incorporate the training you gain from attending this course include: Air Sealing Installer, Energy Auditor, and Home Inspector. If you have one of those professions, or are a general contractor, HERS Rater, Roofer, HVAC specialist, electrician, engineer, or architect, this certification is for YOU!

We offer LEED, BPI, RESNET, Solar, and Wind training in 74 nationwide locations. We hold over a 90% first-time pass-rate on both the LEED and BPI exams, and we are the largest BPI affiliate.
