New BPI Exam Prep Promises Higher Certification Rate

Guided Self-Study Video Course Helps Home Performance Professionals Worldwide Pass Certification Exams from Building Performance Institute

July 12, 2013 - Chicago - Standards for the home improvement industry have been given another push up the ladder with the launch of BPIexamprep.com. The online training, from Home Performance Diagnostics author Corbett Lunsford, is designed as a supplement to BPI Training or for professionals who need to self-study due to limited time, budget, or access to training.

Homeowners and government programs alike have been demanding a growing army of BPI Certified contractors, and even building codes are now recognizing the certification for new home quality control.  "BPIexamprep.com has been years in the making, and something I wish I'd had when I was getting ready to challenge these certification exams," says Lunsford. The modular, self-paced video course offers students all the information needed to put the finishing touches on preparation for any of the main five BPI Certification exams: Building Analyst, Envelope Professional, Heating Professional, A/C and Heat Pump Professional, or Multifamily Building Analyst.

While BPI Exam Prep is not meant to take the place of a week-long hands-on BPI Training, it does help students pass the exams the first time. Many people who seek BPI certification have been out of school, and out of the habit of test-taking, for years. "BPI exam sets have a standard price of $750, so it can be expensive to have to re-take these tests," laments Lunsford. "I got sick of watching other school's students fail these exams on their first try, simply because they didn't know what to expect. The psychology of test-taking is a huge hurdle, and this course helps students get over it."

The online course is self-paced, interactive, and includes 6 modules: 5 guidance videos from Lunsford and a 100-question practice BPI exam. After having trained hundreds of BPI Certified Professionals, and proctored hundreds of BPI exams, Lunsford and his Building Performance Workshop are standing up for students everywhere, and giving them the edge they need to ace the test.
