It'll make me think twice about renewing my cert. I only deal with one entity that asks for BPI certification, and they may have to give me an exception if they want my services after my initial three years is up.

Same here, It appears they are only in it for the money. Do they now require yearly fees?With more than 30,000 exams administered this year and over 1,300 proctors and growing in the network, BPI needs to provide additional oversight to ensure proctoring services are consistent and fair across the nation. Toward this end, BPI will begin implementing quality assurance measures associated with the administration of its exams on February 1st, 2012. Now that's the business to be in

Maine originally issued their own certification and then decided to be more uniform and went to BPI.  That had just started when they decided to move the training under the network of community colleges.  Because of the shift the old training program was shut down, but the new wasn't ready, so they backed up and re-certified everyone for a year while they sorted everything out.  NOW, I wonder if they are rethinking the shift to BPI, as the vast majority of energy auditors in our state work for the state programs, which will have to pick up those new BPI costs.  This is mostly my speculation from the correspondence I have received, but it will be interesting to see if they shift and simply create their own certification again.

As it currently stands up here, I have to meet the states certification requirements or stop practicing energy work, so if they go with BPI I have to pay of seek other employment. What a piece of bull.  Oh, and I also have to get gas certified and oil certified and although they are virtually identical for what we do, they stated we need to pay for both because they need the revenues, as per my instructor.
