Event Description

The Pure Energy Center continues to deliver its Rocky Mountain building science and energy efficiency training programs at its new retreat-style campus on a unique 212-acre Montana ranch. This five-day course incorporates classroom lecture and demonstrations with an emphasis on student interaction during lab exercises.

You’ll learn why houses remain uncomfortable and expensive to run, even after new windows or new heating systems are installed, as well as how:

• Buildings lose and gain energy
• Appliances and HVAC systems use energy
• People control the use or waste of energy
• Houses can make people sick, and how to fix this
• To check structures for energy saving opportunities
• To evaluate the appliances and heating/cooling systems for how to save energy
• To help occupants reduce home energy consumption
• To conduct the diagnostic testing that an energy auditor or building analyst typically needs to know
• To follow Building Performance Institute (BPI) standards and how your BPI certification will support your success in this industry.

 

What makes The Pure Energy Center’s training even more valuable for you?

• We offer personalized mentoring and support after you’ve completed the course
• We deliver a hands-on experience: with four very different on-site houses, you get to practice home auditing techniques first-hand and get instant feedback
• We offer optional BPI Building Analyst Professional testing right after the course
