• Learn how to help builders and architects positively affect building design using a whole house, total systems approach.

• Learn to professionally & scientifically evaluate home's energy performance & comfort issues, & offer recommendations

• Learn how to utilize powerful diagnostic equipment and updated software to aid you in the energy analysis.


• Learn the latest energy finance and incentive programs that can help you expand your business.


Application in the Field


Energy ratings are commonly used as verification methods for programs such as Energy Star, LEED® for Homes, and various regional programs.  This training will prepare you to perform energy ratings in these, and similar settings. 

Additional training is recommended to ensure that the Rater is able to provide proper program verification. We suggest that Raters pursue additional training as a BPI Building Analyst or Envelope Professional to learn additional diagnostic skills that will prepare you for the intricacies of existing buildings and their unique qualities.
