Registration Now Open for Pilot Exams to be Offered in June 2012

In June BPI will introduce four new certifications to the nation's weatherization and home performance workforce. Offered by BPI and funded by U.S. DOE and NREL, the certifications focus on the most common job classifications in the industry: energy auditor, retrofit installer, crew leader and quality control inspector. 


The new credentials will meet the international benchmark for personnel certifications across all industries - the ISO 17024 standard. Under ISO 17024, each new certification is developed using international best practices, such as cross-disciplinary peer review and industry validation of technical materials. To meet the quality and rigor of ISO 17024 accredited certifications, all candidates must meet prerequisite criteria prior to taking the written or field exams.
 
The new certifications will complement and build upon BPI's existing credentials in the home performance career ladder, where increased knowledge and skills lead to advancement. They are designed to allow professionals in the industry build both a stackable and lateral career lattice. These certifications will not replace or interfere with professional certifications in the building trades, such as HVACR, plumbing or remodeling, but rather are intended to support the four most common whole-house home performance job roles.

BPI will pilot written and field practical exams during the month of June. The results of the pilot test cycle will be used to set passing scores for the national exams. BPI expects to roll the exams out nationally in the fall of 2012. For more information, go to http://www.bpi.org/news_expansion.aspx?selectedID=819.
