Designed for experienced home performance professionals, the four new certifications focus on the most common jobs in the home energy upgrade industry: energy auditor, retrofit installer, crew leader and quality control inspector. The new certifications are funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and offered by BPI.
The new certifications will not replace BPI's existing certifications. Rather, they will complement and build upon BPI's existing credentials in the home performance career ladder, where increased knowledge and skills lead to advancement.
