BPI Announces Home Energy Upgrade Professional Certifications for Veterans

GI Bill Reimbursement Available for BPI Certification Testing 

The Building Performance Institute, Inc. (BPI) is pleased to introduce professional certifications in the growing field of home energy efficiency upgrades to U.S. veterans. Skills and experience obtained through military service, including technical skills and commitment to quality, are highly valued in the home performance industry.

The cost of BPI certification exams has been approved for GI Bill reimbursement. Eligible veterans in the Eastern Region of the U.S. can be reimbursed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) when applications are submitted within one year from the time the test is taken.

This is great news for the exam fees.  What about the classroom training, and field exam fees?  Not quite sure what "Home Energy Upgrade Professional" is in the BPI definition of certifications.  Is this a bundled description of all of your specific trainings?
