BPI Launches Building Science Principles Certificate for Home Performance and Energy Upgrade Industry

The Building Performance Institute, Inc. (BPI) launched its Building Science Principles (BSP) Certificate of Knowledge and companion Reference Guide today, responding to strong demand for a method of verifying basic building science knowledge in the home performance and energy efficiency retrofit fields.

"The Building Science Principles certificate is a first step into the world of home performance," said Larry Zarker, BPI CEO. "It's for those in the residential building trades and anyone interested in a career in sustainability, who need to know how homes work but don't need the hands-on technical skills required of BPI certified professionals."
